Sovereign Hill, Ballarat Reviews

  • Love this place. Lots to do and learn. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff who are happy to explain things to you. The pies at the bakery are award winning for good reason. The ticket price includes the gold museum which is well worth a visit. You can go back for a second day which we did as there is so much to see. You could allow half a day just for the gold museum there is so much to read.

  • Very nice and educational. Completely presented how people in old days live for gold mining. You can also experience finding your own gold! Really fun place and want to come back! Better go there when they open, too many things to see! Arrange your schedule well and you can see many things! And always check the weather before going. Even in summer, If it rains, take your jumper and umbrella is a strongly recommended.

  • Fantastic experience of 1850s gold rush life. So much to do - if you have time make sure to validate your ticket for a second (consecutive) day free. Lots of great souvenirs available which are made on site at the Tin Smiths, Forger, candle stick makers, the boiled sweet shop (try the raspberry drops), News printer, or more. If you want to dress up in the fashion of the day and get a black & white or sepia photo make sure to visit the photographer early in the day to book. (Their clothes adjust to many sizes and slip over your own clothes). There is a modern cafe and eating area off to the side, but I recommend getting a pie, pasty or sausage roll at the bakery. Toilets are numerous and dotted about the site. Panning for gold is likely to yield a few specs of gold, which you can keep (little glass jars are available for about a dollar nearby). Recommended for families, but you may want to go over two days if your little ones tire easily.

  • One of the best days out I have had in many years. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. The staff are so epic, and their character play is top notch. Perfect for adults and children alike.

  • The village was absolutely lovely! Felt very real, as if I was really back in the 1850s. All the actors and actresses were also very polite and dedicated to their role - it was very adorable to be greeted with a tip of a hat. They were also very funny. The gold pour demonstration was also interesting, and we also watched another demonstration of a musket gun firing. Although aside from these olden sights, there isn't that much to do in this village. The ticket price is slightly high, about 60AUD for adults and you still have to top up for the gold mine tour which we did not go on. But the atmosphere created by the physical environment as well as the dedication and effort of all the actors and actresses was amazing and made up for the lack of things to do. We also watched the Blood of the Southern Cross, and although the timing of all the light and sound is impressive, the show itself was not that captivating. Most of it was just narration accompanied by effects. An interesting re-enactment of historical events, but for those not interested in history, it might be a bit of a bore.
