Eureka is a suburb enclosed on all sides by Ballarat East, 2 km east of central Ballarat. Eureka is most notable as the site of the historic event of the Eureka Rebellion, which has national significance to Australia. The Eureka Centre is located at the historic site of 1854 Eureka Stockade rebellion and is home to one of Australia’s most revered cultural artefacts – the Eureka Flag. The Centre is surrounded by the scenic Eureka Stockade Memorial Gardens. It is a perfect place to grab a coffee, enjoy the wonderful park surrounds and learn more about the Eureka story. Eureka is mostly a residential area and is home to primary schools, a park & recreation area with a playground and public barbeque area, public outdoor pool and a shopping strip. The suburb of Eureka is bounded by Queen Street (west), Specimen Vale South, Stawell and Kline Streets (east) and a linear reserve south of Eureka Street.
