Fans of Ballarat’s biggest television show now have the chance to see its historic set locations through a new tour.

The official Dr Blake Ballarat tour takes people to some of the show’s most iconic locations.

This includes the East Ballarat Fire Station, the Old Colonists’ Club, Ballarat airport and Lydiard Street.

Tour operators Bev and Jim Hocking created the new business with the support of Visit Ballarat.

Mr Hocking said it would add a new element to the tours of the city he and his wife already offered.

“We walk through the Ballarat Art Gallery on Lydiard Street because there is a connection there as well. It is amazing what people know and want to see about Dr Blake.”

The tour has already attracted fans from the Isle of Man, England and NSW. It runs seven days a week at 10.30am and 2.30pm.

Mrs Hocking said tours can be booked at toursgo2000.com.au or by calling 0407 966 651.
