Tickets for Sovereign Hill: Day Tour from Melbourne
- Travel the Western Highway - a real stagecoach route of the 1850s - and learn about the area's unique gold mining history
- Meet blacksmiths and traditional craftsmen, enjoy some homemade boiled lollies, and try panning for gold
- See a valuable collection of gold nuggets, gold coins, alluvial deposits, and priceless gold artifacts at the Gold Museum
What's that sparkling over there? All that glitters isn't gold, but at Sovereign Hill it just might be! Explore the colourful history of 19th-century gold discoveries on the Western Highway with costumed characters, happy horses, and some rare gold-panning opportunities.
Exquisite gardens, statues of noble VIPs, and almost 40 horses await to make your gold-mining explorations truly realistic at this immersive open-air museum outside Melbourne.
Try your luck at gold panning in Red Gully Creek, and don the hard hat for a Red Hill mine tour. It's a dark and scary job, but someone's got to do it.
There's more mining history to dig up at the Gold Museum, and if you don't find any treasures of your own, at least you'll make some golden memories before heading back to Melbourne.
