The Mechanics' Institute
Situated in the cultural heart of Ballarat’s CBD is the Mechanics institute – a beautifully restored historic building. I took a tour of the place to find out what goes on inside. What followed was an interesting look into the past, complete with historic books, graffiti and Arnott’s biscuits.
Pictured below is historic Grafitti on the roof of the basement also Phil Roberts, our tour guide, descending into the Mechanics institute’s creepy underground.
