    June 14, 2022

    It’s time for your team to experience the sound, lights and wintry delights as Sovereign Hill’s Winter Wonderlights returns, from 25 June - 17 July. 

    By day, Sovereign Hill is alive with a full program of hands-on activities, delicious treats, and an inspiring setting.

    But when the sun goes down, that’s when the real magic happens as Sovereign Hill dazzles with a sound and light show illuminating the facades of the iconic streetscape.

    Sovereign Hill has been wowing audiences for over 50 years. Generations of Australians and overseas visitors have experienced its recreated 1850s goldfields township where there is real gold in the creek and history comes alive.

    Take this opportunity to really connect with your colleagues and book an overnight Stay in the heart of the action with all the goldrush excitement at Sovereign Hill’s very own hotel. The Hotel offers great value, on-site accommodation with dining options inside Sovereign Hill ranging from à la carte to quaint bars, take-away eateries, and the famous Hope Bakery.

    Start thinking further afield for future business events as Sovereign Hill’s new cultural and event spaces are expected to be complete by mid-2024. The project will deliver the Waterside and Wadawurrung Cultural Precinct – a state-of-the-art space to encourage people to learn about the Wadawurrung people – the Traditional Owners in the Ballarat region.

    A new pavilion will cater to corporate functions or events for up to 500 people and also be used for educational purposes and community groups. Sovereign Hill’s famous gold panning precinct is also set to be rejuvenated, with upgrades focused on enhancing events and experiences at night time.

    Sovereign Hill’s commitment to creating great heritage and value-for-money make it one of the best tourist attractions in the world. Step back in time and discover why.
