Sovereign Hill's mission is to present, in a dynamic group of museums, the mining and social history of Ballarat and to ensure that our visitors are engaged, are informed, are entertained and become our best advocates.

A goldfields township set over 60 acres on the site of the world's richest alluvial gold mine. Over 60 buildings throughout the township to explore. More than 40 horses working in the township. See craftsmen at work in traditional 1850's trades. Go underground in the Red Hill and Quartz Mines. Marvel at $50,000 AUS of liquid gold being poured. See demonstrations and street activations every day
