Australia’s first Nazareth house, our majestic home in Ballarat has superb views over Lake Wendouree

Welcome to Nazareth House in Ballarat, where we have been providing care for the elderly since 1888. The values of love, compassion, patience, respect, justice and hospitality are guiding principles underpinning all we do.  A strong sense of community, our residents often comment that it provides ‘a sense of peace, welcoming and belonging’.

We look forward to welcoming you for a tour.
