    Took the VIP Wildlife Close Encounters package. It's a great experience. The tour guide are very friendly and the trip is well planned. Will prefer if we have longer time to spend in Sovereign Hill. Overall we enjoyed.

What To Expect

One of the best outdoor museums, Sovereign Hill is a must do in Melbourne. Discover the colorful history of mining in the region - including the discovery of gold - that dates all the way back to the 1850s. Travel back in time and explore the stage coach route along the Western Highway to Ballarat. Tour through the beautiful town, walk through its gardens, and get a chance to see the magnificent architecture of the 1850s. You can even try your luck at gold panning in Red Gully Creek, and go through the underground caves on the Red Hill mine tour. Depending on what package you choose, you can also enjoy a delicious lunch at the legendary New York Bakery, or go on a VIP wildlife experience where you get to feed some kangaroos and see some koalas up close. While you’re there, don’t forget to visit the Gold Museum too! There's so much to see and do at Sovereign Hill - make the trip for a day well spent.

    Great experience to visit the open air museum and understand the gold mining activities. A little bit boring and food a little bit pricy.

    This trip is really good! The tour guide is very nice and knowledgeable. Sovereign Hill reflects what it was like in the past and the workshops there are very interesting.
  • lydia 21 Jun 2018
    This place is small, and nothing can we do.. the price for food is overprice too..
  • Zhi Hui 16 Mar 2018
    Definitely will recommend people to take this tour for a very unique experience back to the 1800s for the gold rush. :)

    In fact, the event content spots are completely ok, and it is worth going to this wildlife zoo. But the whole arrangement is really very problematic. It takes a lot of surprise and won't miss. First of all, the bus that took the morning was not directly to the event venue. It takes you to another windy and multi-personal place (believed to be the local travel centre) and queues up for another bus. But no one noticed this in advance. Finally, we waited for half an hour before we got to the bus that belongs to our activities. We were at the safari station because we booked a VIP (that is, you can take photos with the koala). When the staff started, someone would tell us about the arrangement of the photo, but at the end no one knew about it. At the end of our activities, we asked someone to take pictures of us in a hurry. And the attitude is not very good. At the end of the journey, the driver first asked where our hotel was parking for us. The place where my family lived was traffic-smooth. Who knows that he finally stopped at a few streets away from us. ⋯⋯ Our family of four plus two-year-old children walked back to the hotel. It’s not what I imagined, but I’m having a good time and my schedule is overwhelming.

    Pay special attention to the red pawn playing time, you must! The gunshots are very strong! Absolutely good experience! In addition, the mine hole is very novel! The staff has an introduction to patience. Unfortunately, the gold rush failed.
