Travel back to the 1850s when people from around the world would flock to Ballarat to seek a fortune in gold. Spend the day experiencing what life was like back in the gold rush days. Visit the impressive Gold Museum, Sovereign Hill and try your luck at panning for real gold!
Wandering around Sovereign Hill really does take you back in time and is exemplary as an outdoor museum that reflects Ballarat's history with gold discovery in the 1850s. Take a town tour of Ballarat en-route to Sovereign Hill where you will spend the majority of your time seeing and experiencing the gold rush era. The original shops are a real treat such as the blacksmiths and a favourite for many is the lolly shop where you can purchase homemade boiled lollies.
