    Lovely experience to learn about the gold mining days. School camp kids dress in period costumes and have lessons in the various classrooms onsite.

    Buy a day pass and get the next day free. Great value if you are in Ballarat for a few days.

    Always make a booking when you wish to take photos with those costumes. They're always fully booked when you get there.

    You don't have to pay an entrance fee just to go shopping at Sovereign Hill - Just ask for a pass & shop to your hearts content. Try the Butter Balls at the old Lolly Shop or the Yummy Pies from the
