Sovereign Hill's unique after-dark experience.
Experience the excitement of Ballarat’s goldrush days at Australia’s foremost outdoor museum.
Sovereign Hill recreates Ballarat’s first ten years after the discovery of gold in 1851, when thousands of international adventurers rushed to the Australian goldfields in search of fortune.
By day, Sovereign Hill is where Australia’s history comes to life. It’s just like stepping back in time—from the hustle and bustle of Main Street to the excitement of the Red Hill Gully Diggings, where visitors can pan for real gold that’s theirs to keep! Watch a spectacular $160,000 gold pour or catch a horse-drawn coach and tour the town. Convenient on-site accommodation is available.
