From the late s to the early 20th century, Ballarat made a successful transition from a gold rush town to an industrial-age city.
The ramshackle tents and timber buildings gradually made way for permanent buildings, many impressive structures of solid stone and brick mainly built from wealth generated by early mining.

A direct railway to Melbourne was completed in December Local boosterists at the start of the 20th century adopted the nickname " Athens of Australia", first used to describe the city by the prestigious Irish-Australian jurist and politician of the early 20th century Sir John Madden.

A new prefabricted power terminal substation at Norman Street Ballarat North was constructed between and by the State Electricity Commission. Elizabeth II visited on 8 March On 23 Novemberthe Olympic torch was carried through the city, and the following day the rowing events were held at the lake. During the following decades, the city saw increased threats to its heritage. Inthe Ballarat City Council passed laws banning pillar-supported verandahs in the CBD, which threatened the removal of historic cast iron verandahs in the city.
The by-law was met by staunch opposition from the National Trust, which had begun campaigning to protect some of the city's most historic buildings. With the opening of Sovereign Hillthe city made a rapid shift to become a major cultural tourist destination, visited by thousands each year.

The city lies within a mostly gently undulating section of the midland plains which stretch from Creswick in the north, to Rokewood in the south, and from Lal Lal in the south-east to Pittong in the west.
Geologically, the area consists of alluvial sediment and volcanic flows originating from now-extinct volcanoes such as nearby Buninyong and Warrenheip, which are the area's tallest peaks. As a result, the basin contains large areas of fertile agricultural soil.
Along with the visible river and creeks, the catchment basin has numerous active and inactive aquifers and natural wetlands, which are used for urban water supply, agriculture and recreation.
There are numerous densely forested areas around Ballarat; however due to historic wood milling and land clearing there remain no old-growth forests. The major natural bodies of water are in the west and include the former shallow swamps of Lake Wendouree which is central to the city's western suburbs and beyond Winter's Swamp and the large Lake Burrumbeet wetland complex. Almost all of the other numerous bodies of water have been created artificially and include several reservoirs, the largest being the White Swan Reservoir and smaller suburban lakes such as Lake Esmond.
The reach of the Yarrowee River toward Ballarat Central becomes a stormwater drain and is completely covered over as it flows under the CBD.
