ARE YOU UP FOR AN ADVENTURE?
Then this is your chance to join Sovereign Hill’s amazing underground Mine and Gold Museum tours.
For a fully-guided tour, visit the Gold Mine and board the mine tram to journey deep below Sovereign Hill for a unique underground experience! There are three to choose from.
The Sovereign Hill:
A day at Sovereign Hill is a day filled with fun and adventure. Discover all the action and excitement of life as it was in 1850s Ballarat during the greatest alluvial gold rush the world has ever seen.
Sovereign Hill is a living museum with working exhibits brought to life by costumed characters and over 40 horses. Set on 25 acres of an original mining site, Sovereign Hill is a goldfields town with shops, hotels, a theatre, schools, factories, gold diggings and underground mines to explore.
Sovereign Hill is an easy 90-minute drive from Melbourne and we have plenty of free parking on-site.
The Gold Museum extends Sovereign Hill’s story of Ballarat - a majestic provincial city built on the wealth derived from the great Australian gold rushes of the 1850s.
An impressive glass-fronted building with commanding views, the Gold Museum offers an award-winning gift shop specialising in the sale of gold nuggets and Australian-made gold jewellery and fine giftware.
Blood on the Southern Cross:
‘Blood on the Southern Cross’ is an explosive multi-million dollar sound-and-light show like nothing you’ve ever seen before!
The story of the Eureka Rebellion, a dramatic battle between gold miners and Government forces at Ballarat on 3 December 1854, is retold nightly by ‘Blood on the Southern Cross’, Sovereign Hill’s acclaimed sound-and-light spectacular.
Set under the night skies at Sovereign Hill, ‘Blood on the Southern Cross’ involves no actors – just voices, dazzling sound-and-light effects and a stunning open-air set. Visitors travel across the site on a comfortable transporter and view much of the action from the re-created Free Trade Hotel on the Eureka Diggings.
Experience the miners’ disgust at unfair gold taxes and witness the dramatic burning of the Eureka Hotel. Then, listen to Governor Hotham’s reasoning for a dawn attack on a band of men who were the first to swear an oath of loyalty on Australian soil to a flag that was not British – the flag of the Southern Cross.
The Secret Chamber:
The new Secret Chamber is our latest innovation! State-of-the-art technology follows the adventures of two Chinese diggers as they search for gold in a strange and hostile land!
The Secret Chamber has undergone a spectacular creative transformation!
Board a mine tram and hold on tightly as it meanders through a dark tunnel and descends into the depths of a gold mine.
Walk through a maze of tunnels with only flickering candlelight to guide you past dig sites, shafts and forbidden places, until you reach The Secret Chamber.
The sound of traditional Chinese music draws you in - and the rock walls reveal their secret! Watch in wonder as the story unfolds around you - the story of Chin Tem and his brother is a tale based on the adventures of the young Chinese diggers who flocked to Ballarat in the 1850s in search of gold.
For Deaf and hearing impaired visitors, The Secret Chamber is available as an OpenAccess Tour using Auslan translation and captions. Simply download the app from the App Store or Google Playstore onto your smartphone before your visit, or when you arrive.
