your experience

Sovereign Hill is a living museum that tells the story of Ballarat during the gold rush. Gold was discovered here in 1851, sparking the world's largest alluvial gold rush. Ballarat grew rapidly from a sleepy pastoral settlement to a fine provincial city built on the wealth derived from its gold.

Sovereign Hill's Outdoor Museum brings the gold rush to life through a living township, covering 15 hectares of a former gold mining site. With over 18 scheduled activities happening throughout the day, you can find yourself panning for real gold, witnessing musket firing, and seeing boiled lollies, wheels, and candles being made all before your eyes. The Outdoor Museum is a living museum with rare trades, working machinery, and other exhibits.
