Those enamel plates,if I remember correctly,were from taxis,at least the Ballaarat one are. The yellow Ballaarat one was off a 1947 Mercury taxi,owned by a gentleman that everybody used to call "Mr Mac."

It morphed quickly from Ballaarat to Ballarat as the geographical name. IIRC the railway (opened in 1862) always used Ballarat, and so did maps. The spelling Ballaarat survived as the formal incorporated name of the municipality until the ~1992 Kennett forced mergers: City of Ballaarat, Borough of Sebastopol and bits of adjoining shires were merged as City of Ballarat. The same merger era eliminated the Lillydale vs Lilydale duality, and possibly Queensliffe vs Queenscliff.
IIRC my pre-1992 Ballarat Bitter can, showing Ballarat Bertie, has the geographical version. Here is another related piece of Australian social/technical history:

Deeper gloom: Nobody has beaten me to it, and I do know it, but I don't want grab it and use it up prematurely. I'll enter only if it goes for 48 h unidentified. It takes time to select and prepare a good challenge photo.

You are not that far away Blackduck. I reckon it is the Paringa Bridge over the River Murray on the Mildura side of Renmark.
