32 aerial photos of Ballarat that show incredible change

Ballarat certainly has changed a lot since the mid-2000s.

Sometimes it just seemed to happen before we even realised.

So, we thought we would help you look back and remember what used to be.

From massive housing developments in Delacombe and Lucas, to the more unassuming expansions in Miners Rest, Brown Hill and Cardigan Village, the growth is certainly astounding.

The images in the gallery above compare various Ballarat suburbs from 2004, compared to 2017 (the latest images).

Using Google Earth images, we have been able to show you just how much we have grown as a city.

So flick through the gallery above to see some of the huge growth we have seen as a city.
