Ballarat and District Branch

Our branches are part of the Greens grassroots approach to democracy

Joining the Greens Party means having access to a local Greens branch. Based on local government areas, these hubs are vital avenues for our members to talk about politics and policy, join local campaigning, keep up to date with local issues and have direct access to Greens representatives.

Most of all, local Greens branches are a way for our members to join like-minded people, fellow Victorians who are also passionate about progressive Australian politics. Greens members are extraordinary people and by providing them with the space to foster proactive political and social change, the Greens aim to instil a long legacy of making a difference in the community.

All Victorian Greens members are automatically members of the Australian Greens. Being a part of our growing party means together, through the principles and aims of the Greens, we can stand up for what matters.

About Ballarat and District Greens

The Ballarat and District Greens are a group of people from a variety of backgrounds, brought together by our desire to help shape the future of our city, our environment and our people. As Victoria’s largest Branch outside Melbourne, we are actively involved in the community, for example through our bi-monthly book swap at the Ballarat Farmers Market. Additionally, we are proactive in organising trivia nights and guided bushwalks for the people of Ballarat, among many other community-building and fundraising events. Our Branch includes the largest regional Young Greens Chapter, meaning we have something for everyone who is interested in supporting the Greens in our area. If you are interested in helping the environment, improving social justice and meeting likeminded people, the Greens are for you!

The Ballarat and District Greens meet on the first Monday of every month at the Eastwood Leisure Complex, starting at 7pm.

The Ballarat Young Greens meet at Freight Bar and Restaurant at 7pm every second and fourth Monday of the month.
