Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Explore some of Victoria's true treasures. You'll begin your day with a scenic ride on your way to the city of Ballarat, and a visit to the enticing Ballarat Wildlife Park. Visit with over 400 species of Australian native animals and reptiles with a few "foreign" imports. Kangaroos and emus roam free ready to eat right out of your hand! After your visit, you'll step back in time as you arrive in Sovereign Hill. This interactive outdoor museum recreates the hustle and bustle of 1850s life in a gold rush boomtown. The time and adventures are yours to explore on your own. With over 60 buildings, and volunteers in period costume roaming the streets, you'll feel like you've stepped back in time to relive the boom times. Discover all the town's treasures including the old gold diggings. You can even try your luck panning for gold.
