Your private guide will meet you at your Melbourne city accommodation in a privately appointed luxury vehicle at 8:30am.
Following a comfortable 90-minute journey, you will arrive in the heart of the world’s richest shallow alluvial goldfields, an area that produced over eight tonnes of Victorian gold.
The first stop of the day is Sovereign Hill where you will suddenly be transported 150 years back in time to experience gold rush fever. Pan for real gold, journey underground on a guided mine tour and sit for a costumed photograph with your friends and family.
See a $150,000 gold pour and speak with skilled craftsmen at work in the blacksmith’s forge, the candle works, and the confectionery factory.
Venture on to the grand historic city of Ballarat where you will admire magnificent architecture funded by the great wealth drawn from the dirt while wandering wide streets before sitting down for lunch at the historic Craig’s Royal Hotel.
Prior to returning to Melbourne, make a visit to the Ballarat Wildlife Park for encounters with koalas, kangaroos and a variety of other Australian wildlife.
The return journey will see you returned to your hotel at approx. 5:30pm.
