Learn about Aboriginal history and living culture at Sovereign Hill

In partnership with Ballarat’s Traditional Owners - the Wadawurrung people - the Sovereign Hill Museums Association is proud to announce the third annual Gnarrwirring Ngitj/Learning Together Program. Pronounced noworring nict, this year the learning opportunities will extend beyond the confines of National Reconciliation Week - instead they will be offered throughout 2018:


• Join us on National Sorry Day (26 May), for the annual Gnarrwirring Ngitj Lecture (4.00 pm - 5.30 pm, Sovereign Hill’s Victoria Theatre), featuring Professor Ian D. Clark from Federation University.

• Students can take part in a 50min, Victorian Curriculum-aligned education session entitled Aboriginal People on the Goldfields (free with the price of student admission). Use the contact details below to secure a booking for your class.

• Teachers can join Sovereign Hill Education for a professional learning event during Reconciliation Week entitled Our Shared History - cancelled due to low numbers.

An Evening with Bruce Pascoe (7pm, Wednesday 20 June) - this event is already booked out!

Wadawurrung Weaving Workshops (Wednesday 5 September - various times).
The general public can click here for tickets, while teachers should contact Sovereign Hill Education (see the details below) to secure a place for your class.


• All visitors are invited to a Corroboree by Full Moon on Friday 23 November.

Time: 5.30 pm - 9.00 pm
Adults: $10
Children under 18 free

This award-winning community event is part of The Sovereign Hill Museums Association’s annual Gnarrwirring Ngitj/Learning Together Program, which showcases local Aboriginal history and living culture.

Corroboree by Full Moon will begin as darkness descends. Settle in early to explore Sovereign HiIl’s new goldrush adventure Play Space and enjoy a variety of ‘hands-on’ educational activities suitable for the whole family. Some seating will be available, but you might like to bring a rug and try some delicious snacks with a bush twist from the adjacent Sovereign HiIl Café. Hot and cold drinks will also be available.
