What to expect

Ballarat Wildlife Park

Ballarat Wildlife Park offers a nice comfortable walk around our facilities, with the chance to get up close and personal to some of Australia’s most famous native animals. With over 80 kangaroos roaming free, around the Park, we give you the oppotunity to experience hand feeding these amazing animals. We also give you the chance to interact with koalas, wombats, and a variety of reptiles ranging from snakes to lizards and even a giant tortoise.

Sovereign Hill

Visitors can see a $150,000 gold pour, ride in a horse-drawn carriage and watch street performers, including the Redcoat Soldiers who march and drill before firing muskets. For the adventurous, there are underground mine tours with an inclined tramway ride.

SOVEREIGN HILL - GOLD PANNING

When the mew of gold was discovered at Sovereign Hill in 1851, thousands raced across the ocean to make their fortune. Grab a goldpan or a cradle to try your luck here, it’s “finders – Keepers”!

SOVEREIGN HILL - MAIN STREET

The buildings and shops, including hotels, bakery, theatre, pubs and school at Main Street were built to serve the diggers in the 1850s. Walk along the street or take a horse drawn coach ride to experience it.

SOVEREIGN HILL - CHINESE CAMP

The Gold Museum extends Sovereign Hill’s story of Ballarat as a majestic provincial city built on the wealth of the 1850’s gold rush. This surprisingly interesting museum houses a large collection of gold nuggets found at Ballarat.

Free wine tasting

The mist-shrouded vineyards around Ballarat are famous for subtly-fragrant pinot noir, chardonnay and elegant sparkling wines. Winemakers are also having success with riesling, and even shiraz. Low temperatures and yields, combined with small boutique wineries, are giving Ballarat wines a premium reputation.

Ballarat Botanical Gardens

Relax and enjoy the comfortable walk in Ballarat Botanical Gardens along Lake Wendouree and experience the invaluable heritage here.
