The BP Ballan West Service Centre is located on the southern side of the Western Freeway mid way between the Ballan exits. Ballan is 80km north west of Melbourne and 34km east of Ballarat. The Service Centre is not particularly large but there is adequate parking space on the paved area and also associated parkland. A McDonald's Restaurant is part of the centre and the BP Shop is well equipped. There are amenities and a playground for children. Open paddocks surround the southern side of the service centre. If you decide to stay here overnight then please let them know at the BP Service Station. Some traffic noise may be experienced in this location due to the proximity of the Western Freeway.
