Sovereign Hill is an outdoor museum that re-creates all the action and excitement of Ballarat’s heyday during the great Australian gold rushes of the 1850s.Sovereign Hill is located on a hillside and its exhibits represent Ballarat in its earliest days as an 1850s goldfields township. There are several things to be considered before visiting:All roads and paths are gravel. There is some uneven ground. Main Street at Sovereign Hill is a gentle slope; however, other areas of the site are quite steep. All roads are accessible by wheelchair, but some visitors could find the gravel surfaces difficult to manage.Underground mine tours are accessible for visitors in wheelchairs. Please enquire at the mine office on arrival for bookings. Coach rides require visitors to climb several ladder steps. Parts of Sovereign Hill have wide bluestone gutters between the timber boardwalks and gravel roads. Ramps for crossing the gutters are highlighted on the free Wheelchair & Stroller visitor map, which is available on entry.Please call or visit the website for more information.
