Experience the excitement of the Red Hill Gully Diggings where you can pan for REAL gold and see a spectacular $100,000 gold pour, venture underground on a fully-guided gold mine tour or catch a horse-drawn coach and tour the township.
Guests can also visit working shops, hotels, schools, a theater, crafts, a wheelwright, a candle maker, a confectioner and steam-driven machinery.
Enjoy lunch at the New York Bakery; which was recreated based on advice from Alfred Reid, the son of John Reid, the founder of the original bakery that stood in Ballarat over a century ago.
Be entertained by characters dressed in traditional goldfields costumes that are more than happy to pose for a photo – a great memory of your journey back in time!
Away from Sovereign Hill spend time with the animals at the Ballarat Wildlife Park or visit the Museum of Australian Democracy Eureka (M.A.D.E).
