Suburb Overview

Soldiers Hill is a suburb of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia located directly north of the Central Business District. At the 2006 census, Soldiers Hill had a population of 2,858.

It is one of the earliest planned suburbs of Ballarat following the gold rush.

It is a relatively small area bounded by the Mildura Railway Line to the west, the Serviceton Railway Line to the south, Havelock Street to the east and Howitt Street to the north and is primarily residential.

The hill from which it takes its name was called Soldiers Hill due to it being the location where the Colonial forces of Australia 40th Regiment were stationed prior to the battle of the Eureka Stockade.

It is entirely covered by a City of Ballarat Heritage Overlay with a substantially intact Victorian era architectural character, with an abundance of period detail including distinctive decorative cast iron ornament.

Before European settlement, the area around Soldiers Hill was populated by Wathaurong people, an Indigenous Australian tribe. The hill itself was a steep escarpment that formed part of a greater range and was a schist of quartz and tall stringybark trees.

William Cross Yuille was the first settler of Soldiers Hill. Yuille had been well established in the region and had erected a hut which was the only building on the hill at the time of William Swan Urquhart's first town plan for Ballarat in October 1851, following the initial Ballarat gold rush. The hill was not subdivided in the first plan, though was part of the Grenville County. Later 1850s plans would include Soldiers Hill as one of the first planned suburbs of Ballarat with a grid plan north of the steep escarpment and Yarrowee River gully.

In 1853, on the hill was established one of the first of Ballarat's major schools, the national school, with 450 enrolments in its first year.

Colonial forces of Australia 40th Regiment were stationed on the hill prior to the Eureka Rebellion of 1854.

Among the earliest buildings were the North Star Hotel and Huff Bakery.

In the 1880s the suburb was heavily subdivided as it became a favoured place of residence for Ballarat's middle and upper classes with the city readily accessed by tramway. The suburb had developed with deep narrow blocks and laneways providing rear access to houses. Religious congregations established themselves at the highest point of the hill along with the large homes of the wealthy while middle class cottages and industry sprang up closer to the railway station.
