The Secret Chamber Journey underground into the depths of a gold mine

The Secret Chamber has undergone a spectacular creative transformation!

Board a mine tram and hold on tightly as it meanders through a dark tunnel and descends into the depths of a gold mine.

Walk through a maze of tunnels with only flickering candlelight to guide you past dig sites, shafts and forbidden places, until you reach The Secret Chamber.

The sound of traditional Chinese music draws you in - and the rock walls reveal their secret! Watch in wonder as the story unfolds around you - the story of Chin Tem and his brother is a tale based on the adventures of the young Chinese diggers who flocked to Ballarat in the 1850s in search of gold.

The new Secret Chamber, which is presented in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean and Indonesian, is also available as an OpenAccess Tour using for visitors who are Deaf or have hearing impairments.

The Secret Chamber has been completed in a creative partnership with Resolution Independent, from Melbourne. Sovereign Hill's contribution to the upgrade has been supported by a grant from the Commonwealth Government's Tourism Quality (T-QUAL) program.
