Sovereign Hill

Location: Ballarat, Goldfields

Hours: 10am - 5pm Tuesday to Sunday. (Closed Christmas Day)


Sovereign Hill is a living museum telling the story of Ballarat as a goldrush boomtown. Gold was discovered here in 1851, triggering the greatest alluvial gold rush the world has ever known.

A former gold mining site, Sovereign Hill's Outdoor Museum brings the gold rush to life with diggings, underground mines, costumed characters, coach rides and living, working 1850s shops, trades, schools and dwellings.

**Please note that tickets to AURA are not included in any of the Ballarat Pass Packages, however they can be booked direct through Sovereign Hill**
