What to Expect
Travel reference:

Take a step back in time to Victorian gold rush era with your Sovereign Hill Gold Rush Day Tour!

Come visit the historic town of Ballarat and its most famous tourist attraction - Sovereign Hill, located 116km west of Melbourne. Enjoy your coach ride from Melbourne to Ballarat whilst learning about the history of the prosperous gold rush era of the 1850s and the stories of the historically significant event of the Eureka Stockade. When entering the township of Ballarat you can also admire the distinct architectural features of the 19th century, a legacy of the prosperous gold mining era. 

On arrival at Sovereign Hill, you'll step back in time in the re-created, gold mining settlement for a colourful taste of life as a gold-digger in the 1850s. In this living museum, you will encounter live street performances, be able to visit working exhibitions, attend workshops on blacksmithing, gold pouring and candle making, tour the goldfields and even try your own hand at striking it rich when panning for gold!

You also have the option of visiting Ballarat Wildlife Park to see some of Australia's famous native animals. Get up close with saltwater and freshwater crocodiles, Tasmanian Devils, kangaroos, koalas, echidnas. Take part in interactive shows, visit the exhibits and experience feeding time with the animals. This visit will give you an Australian animal experience you won't forget.
