Minimum of 6, people per tour.

Step back in time to an era when gold was on everyone’s mind and people flocked to the Ballarat region to try their luck.

Australia’s foremost outdoor museum, Sovereign Hill re-creates Ballarat’s first ten years after the discovery of gold in 1851 when thousands of international adventurers rushed to the Australian goldfields to seek their fortune. Sovereign Hill is where Australia’s history comes to life – from the hustle and bustle of Main Street where costumed ladies and gents parade their new-found wealth, to the excitement of the Red Hill Gully Diggings where you can pan for real gold that, if discovered, is yours to keep!

On this tour you’ll enjoy a drive around the historic town of Ballarat and a visit to a gold shop before heading to Sovereign Hill itself. Our experienced guides will share their knowledge of the history behind the Victoria’s gold rush and the stories of the people who took part in it.

It's been brilliant, had loads of fun, can’t believe we saw so much. Everything was really good.
Great gang with loads of Craic! Thanks
