Sightseeing
Set on an original mine site, Sovereign Hill is more than a living museum, it transports you right back to 1851. Here, you can experience the gold rush days through daily demonstrations, workshops, museums, mine adventures, and multi-media displays. During the day, wander the quaint shops of Main Street mingling with actors dressed in period costume, explore the underground mine, ride the horse-drawn coach tour through the township, or strike it rich panning for gold in the river. At night, a spectacular sound and light show tells the story of the 1854 Eureka Uprising, an important part of Australian history. As a multi award-winning attraction, Sovereign Hill is considered one of the best authentic historical experiences in Australia.

Tour the City and Reminisce the Gold Rush days As Victoria's largest inland city, Ballarat is of significant importance historically, commercially, and culturally. In town, the elegant facades of the many historic buildings are also reminiscent of the gold rush days. The older part of town centers on Lydiard Street with the magnificent Her Majesty's Theatre, one of Australia's oldest surviving theaters; Ballarat Fine Art Gallery, featuring works from the gold rush artists; and historic churches. The visitor center (also in Lydiard Street) has a brochure and map for a rewarding heritage walk, which explains the history of each building, and is one of the best free things to do in Ballarat.

About an hour's drive northwest of Melbourne, the town of Mount Macedon nestles at the base of its namesake mountain and was a popular escape from the summer heat for Melbourne's well-to-do after the gold rush.

Probably one of our city’s most iconic alleyways, Hop Lane will lead you through an umbrella-clad laneway to the beer hall that is Hop Temple. Serving up the best craft beer, wine and spirits from Ballarat and surrounds (as well as some equally indulgent brew food), it’s a haven for the hungry thirsty.
