Bacchus Marsh is located mid-way between Melbourne and Ballarat, in a rich and fertile valley that consists of orchards, market gardens and pastoral fields. The township itself has a long history, dating back to the days when gold was first discovered in nearby Ballarat during the 1850’s.
When entering Bacchus Marsh from Melbourne, you will make your way through a beautiful tree-lined strip named “The Avenue of Honour”, complimented by hundreds of aesthetically pleasing Elm and Oak trees, planted to honour those who served during World War One. This road leads directly into the commercial centre of town which offers a mix of retail outlets in both historic and modern buildings and has something to suit everyone.
Main Street is the main activity hub of Bacchus Marsh and is home to the recently upgraded Village Shopping Centre consisting of approximately 48 stores including Coles, Target & Aldi.
Bacchus is a beautiful, family-friendly community township with so much character, charm and history offer.
