Map of Eureka, VIC 3350

Eureka is a small eastern suburb of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia - (AU). It was originally part of Ballarat East but became its own suburb in 1946 in recognition of the area's significance to Australian history. Eureka is bordered by Specimen Creek to the north, Canadian Creek to the south, Queen and Joseph streets to the west and Kline and Stawell Street to the east. The suburb takes its name from the Eureka Lead - a lead is an ancient river bed that contains gold - of the Eureka Mining Company and is most notable as the site of the historic event of the Eureka Rebellion. This as the site where the rebel miners flew the by the Eureka Flag for the first time, a flag that has since become a symbol of the working class and trade union movement. The site is marked by several monuments and a museum called the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (M.A.D.E), which opened in May 2013 and houses the original Eureka Flag, on loan from the Art Gallery of Ballarat.

At the 2016 census, Eureka had a population of 626.
