Experience the excitement of the Red Hill Gully Diggings where you can pan for real gold and see a spectacular $100,000 gold pour. Venture underground on a fully-guided gold mine tour or catch a horse-drawn coach and tour the township.
Guests can also visit working shops, hotels, schools, a theatre, crafts, a wheelwright, a candle maker, a confectioner and steam-driven machinery. Enjoy lunch at the New York Bakery; recreated based on advice from Alfred Reid, the son of John Reid, the founder of the original bakery that stood in Ballarat over a century ago.
