It's no secret that Ballarat is expanding at a rapid rate.
And there's no better way to see just how much the western edge of the city has grown than by looking at it from above.
Using relatively new satellite images, compared to the same from 10 years ago, The Courier can show you just how much the green fields have changed.
From empty corners turning into large shopping centres, to farming land becoming entire suburbs, the western edge of Ballarat has undergone a remarkable transformation.
Flick through the gallery below to see just what difference 10 years has made in Ballarat.
