Democracy, by 10:30 am. Be enchanted by the Diorama, and gaze at the original Eureka Flag. Learn of the fight by the miners, that eventually brought changes to our laws.

Sovereign Hill is the most award-winning, re-created town in Australia and possibly the world. Stroll the streets and you will feel what it was like in the mid-1800s.

Try your hand at gold panning, drop into the bakery, the blacksmith, sit in a classroom, wagons pulled by horses, the list goes on.

You have four hours here before the trip back to Geelong, arriving back a little after 5 pm.
