Visit Australia's foremost outdoor museum, Sovereign Hill, with Harlan Tours.
Sovereign Hill re-creates Ballarat's first ten years after the discovery of gold in 1851 when thousands of international adventurers rushed to the Australian goldfields in search of fortune.
By night, Sovereign Hill presents its spectacular, multi-million dollar sound- and-light show, 'Blood on the Southern Cross', the dramatic story of the 1854 Eureka Uprising.
Sovereign Hill's commitment to authenticity and value-for-money family entertainment saw it judged as Australia's Best Historic and Cultural Experience 2009 by Travelling in Australia Magazine.
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.
'Ballarat: Inspired by Gold' is a major exhibition presenting the story of Ballarat from its earliest days through to European settlement and the amazing impact of the gold rushes. Entry to the Gold Museum is free with your Sovereign Hill ticket. Separate entry is also available.
