About Blood On The Southern Cross, Ballarat

The Blood on the Southern Cross is a performance that you will see nowhere else. It is a fantastic light and sound show that depicts the burning down of the Eureka Hotel. It depicts the war between the gold traders of Australia against the government. It shows how the frustrated gold traders reacted to the ever-increasing gold taxes and burnt down the hotel out of anger. It is shows how the government reacted by declaring a dawn war on the opponents. The men who swore to respect their soil were killed down first as they put up a flag that belonged to the Southern Cross and not to the British at all.

Blood On The Southern Cross, Ballarat Reviews

  • What a spectacular experience this was, the amount of dedication the staff put into this event is unbelievable. If you haven't been since you were a kid, 100% recommend to check this out. I will say that it seemed the kids under 10 seemed to be a bit scared/bored/tired (as this is a night time outdoor event) so perhaps for the older kids. The fact you get to see Sovereign Hill out of the standard hours, and the ride on the carts they have take you to an area you don't get to see during the day. Would again 100% recommend to go if you haven't had the opportunity to see this one. Loved every minute.

  • Great show, variety of different mediums and locations throughout Soverign Hill. Enjoyable even just as a couple. Price probably a little bit steep for what it was given how long the same show has been running.

  • Meal was really good. Like a wedding reception with each couple given one beef and one chicken dish. Kids got small chicken schnitzel with chips. Show was mainly a light/sound show with few live actors. Interesting but not quite what we expected.

  • My son and i went to a summer show and loved it! A must see for anyone coming to visit ballarat

  • Needs updating
