What do you get when you combine the west, gold and history? Sovereign Hill, an outdoor museum and re-creation of the town of Ballarat after the first discovery of gold in 1851. Lunch is included at the legendary New York Bakery.
Wandering around Sovereign Hill really does take you back in time and is exemplary as an outdoor museum that reflects Ballarat's history with gold discovery in the 1850s. Take a town tour of Ballarat en-route to Sovereign Hill where you will spend the majority of your time seeing and experiencing the gold rush era. The original shops are a real treat such as the blacksmiths and a favourite for many is the lolly shop where you can purchase homemade boiled lollies. Enjoy the rustic and western atmosphere of your lunch venue at the New York Bakery in Main Street.
