Sovereign Hill Gold Museum
Sovereign Hill is a live outdoor museum presenting the story of Australia’s fabulous gold rush history. Its particular focus is the impact of the great 19th century gold discoveries on the growth of Ballarat.

Visitors can see a $150,000 gold pour, ride in a horse-drawn carriage and watch street performers, including the Redcoat Soldiers who march and drill before firing their muskets. Along Main Street, there are shops selling 1850s-style goods, hotels and schools to visit, and a theatre with goldfields entertainment. For the adventurous, there are underground mine tours with an inclined tramway ride. And those with a special interest in 19th century trades can chat with the skilled craftsmen at work in the blacksmith's forge, the candle works, the wheelwright's plant, the coachbuilder's and the confectionery factory Sovereign Hill entry also includes entry to the Gold Museum which displays a beautiful exhibition of gold and Ballarat history.
