What has 2700 sites over 60 acres with 14 kilometres of laneways?

It's the Ballarat Swap Meet and it gets underway tomorrow at the airport.

It's the 9th year of the massive volunteer run event under the control of 8 local Rotary Clubs.

Thousands of people from all around the country are expected to attend, with the meet generating about $10m for the Ballarat economy.

Rotary hopes to raise around $130,000 for the Ballarat community with some funds this year going to bushfire relief.
