Grand gold-rush style

The streets of Ballarat feature many graceful Victorian buildings, built from the immense wealth generated from the surrounding gold-fields. One of the grandest examples from this era is the recently renovated Craig's Royal Hotel on Lydiard street. 
I couldn't resist taking a few photos of the ornate Victorian wallpapers that feature throughout the property. I'm sure William Morris would be quite at home here!
