About and History | Ballarat Fish Hatchery

This was the home of Mr. S. L. Learmonth, a member of the Society, who had set up hatching boxes to receive ova.
After some early set backs Brown Trout were successfully raised and in October 1872 some 1500 young fish were distributed into district waters. Mr. Learmonth left 'Ercildoune' in August 1873 and the hatchery was moved to new ponds located in the northern end of the Ballarat Botanical Gardens.
