The Ballarat Independent (TBI) is an online media offering for readers in Ballarat looking for a different point of view. TBI won't do stories on road accidents, court reports or knife crime. We are a vibrant, entertaining, controversial and funny online paper with stories that matter.

TBI is constantly looking for new stories, writers, and columnists. We're committed to getting better and providing you with a real alternative.

It's a big challenge, but this is Ballarat and we're up to it. We deserve better.
