State of Victoria Things to Do: 159 reviews and 358 photos
Ballarat - Sovereign Hill is an award-winning tourist attraction which tells the story of the first ten years following the discovery of gold in Victoria, Australia, in 1851. It is regarded as Australia?s foremost outdoor museum. Laid out over 35 acres, Sovereign Hill features a Diggings area, a Township with over 60 buildings and a Quartz Mine with extensive above ground installations and underground displays.
Its like stepping back in time into the booming goldrush days, you can even try your hand at panning for gold. The staff all go about their chores in costumes of that period. You really need several hours to spend.
Its about an hours drive north west of Geelong.
Address: The Goldfields Area
