Gray Line Melbourne

Join Gray Line and get a taste for Victoria's rich Gold-rush history. In 1850 the world focused on Ballarat as the cry "Gold" echoed around the globe. People from all nations poured into Ballarat to seek fortune, many found the real Australia and decided to make this great land their home.

Today, you too can capture the excitement of these bawdy times as you visit the scene of revolt, rebellion and the emergence of democracy at Eureka and Sovereign Hill in Ballarat. Enjoy a guided mine tour deep underground inside the mines.

Options to Ballarat Wildlife Park or the tour with lunch at the New York Bakery is also available.

Free Wi-Fi internet is now available on all coaches.
