The Ballarat Reform League Inc. launched a major project in 2003 to place monuments on sites across the Victorian goldfields where there were significant actions that culminated in the formation of the Ballarat Reform League in November 1854 and in the battle at the stockade on the Eureka lead, Ballarat, on 3rd December 1854.


Seven monuments have been erected so far, at Buninyong; Chewton; Beechworth; Bendigo and three in Ballarat at: Bakery Hill; Main Road, Ballarat East; and the Eureka Stockade Memorial Park.

The installation of monuments to commemorate the activity at each of these sites has been documented and supported by informative essays written by eminent historians. Documentation for Beechworth and Bendigo is in progress.


The Ballarat Reform League Inc. Monuments Project has been generously supported by The Vera Moore Foundation.
