What people are saying about Ballarat
This is a first class tourist destination without the phoniness that mass tourism implies. Original, imaginative, authentic, with lots of choices and so many wonderful employees and volunteers to chat and interact with so that it's a one-off experience in many ways. Fun and educational for small children and adults. Congratulations to Sovereign Hill!
Really enjoyed our ghost tour, we used some equipment to try and contact resident ghosts and had some very interesting results. Sadly though we had some people on our tour that weren't being respectful of others or the potential spirits around us. Would love to do the tour again though and see what activity we could get second time around.
Fabulous night had by my partner and I. Being one who can communicate with those who have crossed, it made for a very interesting night. We plan to do the sleep over in the near future. Look forward to going through again and other places as well. Thank you for providing such an incredible part of history
Lovely coach trip from Melbourne. Well informed coach driver. Enjoyed listening to the history of Ballarat (would have loved to have taken some photos of the township but the coach did not stop or slow down (the only negative)). Loved Sovereign Hill, the kids enjoyed panning for gold!
This was the best thing we'd done in ages. We had lots of feelings and experiences and got some interesting footage. Will recommend to everyone!!
