The Ballarat Reform League Inc. first met in December 1999 and became an incorporated association in January 2000. It was formed to honour the memory of the original Ballarat Reform League.

In 2003 the Ballarat Reform League Inc. launched a major project, the Ballarat Reform League Inc. Monuments Project, to place Monuments on sites across the Victorian goldfields where there were significant actions that eventually culminated in the formation of the Ballarat Reform League in November 1854 and then the battle at the stockade on the Eureka Lead on 3rd December 1854.The first monument to be placed was a plaque at the site of the Star Hotel in Main Road, Ballarat. It was here that the members of the original Ballarat Reform League met and where quite possibly the Ballarat Reform League Charter was written. Plaques and rock monuments have also been placed at Buninyong, Chewton, Beechworth, Bendigo and Bakery Hill and the Eureka Stockade Memorial Park in Ballarat. Further sites are being researched.

To achieve this trail of monuments across the goldfields the Ballarat Reform League Inc. has been fortunate to have had the financial support of The Vera Moore Foundation.

Other projects still to be finalised include the production of the Monster Meeting Archive Collection with a dedicated website (through the Chewton Domain Society) and the production of this wiki site Eurekapedia (through Ballarat Heritage Services).
