Welcome to the Ballarat Camera Club website!

The Ballarat Camera Club Inc. aims to provide opportunities for members to learn about and improve their photography, regardless of their level of competence. 

Since its establishment in 1938, members of the Ballarat Camera Club Inc. have encouraged and inspired each other in their photographic pursuits and personal growth.

Depending on the needs of members, committee and key club members organise a variety of activities which facilitate the learning of the many aspects of photography.

Through participating in monthly digital club meetings, judging nights, workshops and outings, members can learn new skills and understandings, such as; how to operate their camera, understand light, process images on the computer.  Members have the opportunity to seek feedback on their work and view the work of fellow photographers during these activities. 

The Ballarat Camera Club is affiliated with the Victorian Association of Photographic Societies Inc. (VAPS), which allows members to be involved in the wider photographic community in Victoria, including conferences and interclub competitions.

The “Ballarat National Photographic Exhibition” has been proudly run by the Ballarat Camera Club Inc. since 1968. This exhibition is held in high regards within photographic circles across Australia and is hung in the prestigious ‘Art Gallery of Ballarat’. 

We invite you to browse our website and the galleries within. We hope it inspires you and look forward to welcoming you at one of our activities in the near future! 

Please contact one of our friendly committee members should you wish to join us on one of our activities.

The cost is $13.00 per head. There are no eftpos facilities it’s cash only.

We are welcome to take photos on the tour. The volunteer suggested we watch the video which is set in the 1970’s following our tour then we are most welcome to wander around taking more photos.

I thought we could have a late picnic lunch in the Alexandra gardens afterwards and there should be some photographic opportunities in the gardens.

The gardens are next to the J. Ward facility.

March Workshop Outing: Sunday 13th March

I am seeking interest for a trip to the Skydancers butterflies at Skydancers Garden Gift and Cafe, cnr Midland Hwy and Blackjack Rd which is situated between Castlemaine and Harcourt. 

They have an enclosure which had quite a few different species of butterflies when we visited a few years ago. They also have a coffee shop and nursery on the premises as well.

The date I have in mind for this trip is Sunday the 13th of March. We can once again car pool from Ballarat leaving at 9am. 


Following this we could then proceed to the Buda Historic Home and Garden at 42 Hunter St,Castlemaine.There is an entry cost of $12 per adult ($10 concession).

 Buddha Histroric House and Gardens                                   Buddha Histroric House and Gardens

Or alternatively we could explore some of the historic buildings in Castlemaine or the surrounding countryside.
