THE Ballarat Swap is said to be the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere and we have no reason to doubt it. We walked around all day today checking out the stands and have seen barely half of it.

Part of the attraction is the social aspect - with punters coming from all over the east coast, you’re sure to run into at least a few mates. Here’s a little of what we found.

The show is open all day Saturday at Ballarat Airport, see for info.
