Family activities

There's plenty of things to keep the kids occupied in the Goldfields. Discover the unique histories of the Victorian gold rush, meet knights in shining armour, get back to nature, or join in the fun at local festivals and events.

By the creek
Learn about the gold rush while spending an afternoon panning for real gold at Sovereign Hill, or walk in the footsteps of past miners on an underground tour of the Central Deborah Gold Mine.

Fairytale frolics
Meet kings, queens, princesses, wizards and dragons at Kryal Castle. Stay for live performances, horseback heroics, fine feasts and spine-tingling tales of sorcery.

Under sunny skies
Explore this beautiful region's great outdoors. The Goldfields offer a range of picturesque cycling and walking trails taking in stunning forests, open bushland and historic towns. Head out for a hike, stop for a picnic, see local wildlife, and learn about gold rush history in beautifully preserved towns along the way.

Feeling festive
Bring the kids and take part in one of the many festivals and events held throughout the year. Get revved up and enjoy everything from music festivals, markets and sports carnivals to food festivals, Easter parades and Christmas celebrations.
