Sovereign Hill brings to life the excitement of Australia’s great 1850's gold rushes. Named Australia’s best ‘Major Tourist Attraction’ three times, most recently in 2016 and 2015, Sovereign Hill provides a unique Australian experience and a full day of entertainment.

There’s real gold to be panned – and it’s ‘finders keepers’, an underground gold mine, street theatre and the opportunity to meet costumed goldfields characters. See a spectacular $150,000 gold pour and chat with skilled craftsmen at work in the blacksmith’s forge, the candle works, the wheelwright’s plant, the coach builder’s and the confectionery factory.

Sovereign Hill entry also includes entry to the Gold Museum which displays a beautiful exhibition of gold and Ballarat history.

By night, Sovereign Hill presents its spectacular, multi-million dollar sound-and-light show, 'Blood on the Southern Cross', the legendary story of the 1854 Eureka Uprising, a great Australian drama.

Excellent accommodation is available on-site at the recently refurbished Sovereign Hill Hotel. Accommodation options include superbly-appointed Governor's rooms or comfortable Sovereign rooms for couples and for families choose from spacious well-appointed Colonial rooms or affordable family rooms. All accommodation rates are inclusive of breakfast.

Please contact Sovereign Hill or view their website for further information.
