Description

Bald Hills is a locality in central Victoria, Australia, in the Hepburn Shire local government area, 107 kilometres (66 mi) west of the state capital, Melbourne, and 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) north of Ballarat. The area is about 442 metres (1,450 ft) above sea level.The area is dominated by large volcanic hills, including Mount Blowhard, Mount Pisgah, Mount Hollowback and Mount Cavern. These hills gave the area its name: These rounded mound-like hills are thickly dotted over the surface, at times there being fully a score of them in view at once. They are almost bare of trees, and have been named by the bushmen "bald hills." Balds Hills also at one time had a railway station on the still operating Ballarat - Creswick - Maryborough line (station now closed and no evidence exists) and several hotels (all closed). # History # Weather # Things to do
