Pan for gold in this replica goldmining town topped off with authentically dressed townsfolk. Sovereign Hill is Australia's leading outdoor museum having recreated the heady gold rush days of the 1850's after thousands of hopefuls from around the globe converged on Australia in search of digging up a fortune. Tour the underground mine, visit hotels, schools and theatres or immerse yourself into the theme with a horse-drawn coach tour of the town. In the Main Street, ladies and gents entertain visitors with lively versions of past events.

Discover the alluring facets of gold at The Gold Museum as you view gold nuggets, priceless gold artefacts, gold coins and alluvial deposits. Find out what the fuss was all about at the Museum's main exhibit, 'Ballarat: Inspired By Gold'. Sovereign Hill's dedication to presenting a colonial atmosphere and value for money is reflected in the fact that they were presented with the accolade of Australia's Best Historic and Cultural Experience in 2009 by Travelling Australia Magazine.
