Ballarat is proudly the home of the Eureka Stockade: a defining moment in democracy and the assertion of workers' rights.

Located adjacent to the Eureka Centre, this playspace interprets some of the story of the stockade into an engaging and imaginative environment for children.

Katherine worked on this project while at MJLA, and it builds on that practice's strong philosophy around accessibility and play being more than simply a physical activity.
