Suburb Snapshot: Redan

The size of Redan is approximately 2.2 square kilometres and has 7 parks covering nearly 25.6% of total area. The population of Redan in 2011 was 2,975 people and by the 2016 Census the population was 2,893 showing a population decline of 2.8% in the area during that time.

One of Redan’s earliest public facilities was the Miners’ Racecourse (1862), now the site of a raceway in Morshead Park. It ran for 100 years, when its events were transferred to the Dowling Forest racecourse, Miners Rest. Morshead Park has tracks for greyhound and harness racing and a large soccer venue.

The State primary school has a handsome jubilee arched gateway (1934), although the present boundaries for Redan have put the school in Sebastopol. Redan was on an electric tramline (1913) along Drummond and Skipton Streets from Ballarat to Sebastopol.
