Sovereign Hill is huge. Let our bookings officers help you get the best educational value out of a visit to Sovereign Hill and the Gold Museum according to your interests and time.

A single entry fee gives you a whole day of activities and fun! We will help you develop a program tailored to your curriculum or area of study. Paid entry gets you a session with an Education Officer (see Education Sessions), and could include some or all of the following:
• Self-guided tour of the Red Hill Mine
• Gold smelting demonstration producing a $140,000 gold ingot
• Gold panning in the creek
• The Gold Museum
Pre booking is essential for all these activities
