Yes, there is one. But the description of the town (dare I call it that) on Wikipedia is priceless.
Today, Ballarat has one full-time resident. As of June 2013 Rocky Novak and his dogs, Potlicker and Brownie, live in the town. Rocky runs the general store on afternoons and weekends to supply tourists, and is working on repairing the water pipes that supply the town, for which he is paid by the government. Every summer, a woman named June and her son move into the former jailhouse/morgue.
Oh! And the highlight event:
On Easter weekend, 1971, about two thousand people attended a “hippy” celebration at Ballarat. About two hundred contracted hepatitis (A) from contaminated drinking water.
