Dr Blake filming returns to Ballarat, shuts off Lydiard Street

It’s a scene that we’ve grown to know and love in Ballarat – and it’s happening again today.

The Doctor Blake Mysteries is filming again in the centre of town, transforming Lydiard Street into a world of 1950s paraphernalia.

Only this time – its main star Craig McLachlan is on scene.

Filming in September, 2016

When the show was last publicly filmed in Ballarat in September, onlookers were somewhat disappointed not to catch a glimpse of the famed actor.

But not this time around.

The ABC series is currently in production of a fifth series, all of which have been based around Ballarat in the 1950s.
