A Definitive Ranking of Ballarat's Loosest Water Features

Fountain 0

In celebration of Ballarat's latest water feature getting switched on at Lake Wendouree, we've compiled and ranked Ballarat's top 7 loosest water features.

Number 7: The strange flower looking bridge on Lake Wendouree.

 Fountain 0

This loose unit only made the list because from a distance it looks like it might do something cool, but in reality it does nothing at all.

Number 6: The Midlands Aquatic Playground.

Fountain 0

This haven of aquatic fun would have ranked a lot higher had it have been switched on...

Fountain 0

...however as it's still practically winter, it's sensibly switched off. And doing things sensibly is a great way to lose points for looseness.

Number 5: The Peterson Fountain.

Fountain 0

Sporting a sick as bird frolicking up top, and some frog bling down the bottom, the Peterson Fountain easily nabbed a humble number 5 ranking.

Number 4: The Rustic Fountain on Lake Wendouree.

Fountain 0

This is a pity prize more than anything. The poor bugger has to sit there looking sad and lonely while everyone takes photos of the shiny new attraction in the background.

Number 3: The Claxton Fountain.

 Fountain 0

The Claxton Fountain gets so rowdy they had to put it in a cage... fair enough.

Number 2: Burke and Wills Fountain on Sturt Street.

Fountain 0

A fountain that celebrates two pioneers who perished during a gruelling trek through the middle of Australia, facing monsoon rains, poor and often nonexistent roads and broken wagons... this water feature was always going to rank well.

Number 1: The Light and Hope Fountain.

Fountain 0

It may not look like much during the day, but check out how loose Ballarat's newest water feature gets after dark...
