We really are More Than Gold

16 May 2018

More Than Gold was officially launched on Tuesday 15 May in spectacular style at the Hop Temple.
What a night! 100 guests were treated to a fire-twirling and drumming performance while soaking up the street poster display along the laneway.

The energy and passion of MC Bryce Ives was totally infectious as he took the crowd through a special round of bingo trivia, featuring trivia questions based on Ballarat and the region.

Special launch ambassadors, Julia Zass from Power FM and Matthew Cumani of Cumani Racing, shared their stories on what living and working in Ballarat means to them and why it is their destination of lifestyle choice.

The launch was the official release of the More Than Gold book, which features residents sharing what they love about Ballarat and the region,  and why they have chosen to live, work and invest here. The stories, along with the stunning photos, provide an outstanding visual representation of the region.

More Than Gold is a campaign showcasing everything our sensational region has to offer. The launch proved, without doubt, we are so much More Than Gold! Our progressive city and region is full of amazing residents with outstanding stories to tell.
