— What You Can Expect —

Sovereign Hill is a living museum presenting the story of Ballarat as a gold rush boomtown. Gold was discovered here in 1851, triggering the greatest alluvial gold rush the world has ever known. The sleepy pastoral settlement of Ballarat grew rapidly into a fine provincial city built on the wealth derived from its gold. 

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

The Outdoor Museum enjoys international renown as a living museum featuring rare trades, working machinery, exhibits, and costumed interpreters.

Daily activities include:

- The Diggings Tour
Explore Life on the early Goldfields hosted by a costumed interpreter.

- The Red Hill Mine Tour
Discover the dark, dangerous world of deep lead mining and witness the discovery of the famous “Welcome Nugget”.

- Gold panning
There’s real gold to be found in The Diggings and it’s yours to keep! Make sure you stop by the Waterloo store and purchase a gold bottle to protect your precious find.

- Musket Firing
Our Troopers will tell you about law and order on the goldfields and demonstrate to you how to load and fire a musket.
