We had a huge day out at Sovereign Hill. It’s an outdoor museum where everything is setup like the early gold rush era of 1850s. You can buy old style hard candy, fabrics, soaps and souvenirs. There are demonstrations for how they made tools, wood working, gold panning and refining.
It’s a big park so my advice would be make a plan ahead for the day, we were a bit all over the place trying to catch the shows and missing some.
The musket firing demo gives a good Ballarat history lesson. And the gold melting was a great demo to catch too.
