Atmospheric storytelling

Over 64 acres, hundreds of stunning projections create an immersive storytelling experience that transports you back in time. The Wadawurrung creation story is told with projections on a magnificent lake, gunfights and protests erupt under the night sky, and the gold rush is brought to life as never before.

Frequently asked questions

What is the duration of the show?
Approximately 90 minutes.

Are pre-bookings recommended?
Pre-bookings are ESSENTIAL. Book Now, or via email: aura@sovereignhill.com.au or by phone on 03 5337 1199.

Is the show weather dependant and what clothing is suitable?
AURA Sovereign Hill recommends warm, casual clothing and flat walking shoes. Rarely due to extreme weather we may cancel, but your show will be rescheduled.

Is the show suitable for children?
Parental discretion is required as the show employs loud sound effects and dramatic pyrotechnics.

How is AURA different from the old ‘Blood on the Southern Cross’ show?
Blood on the Southern Cross was about the Eureka Rebellion and its impact on the development of Australia as a nation. AURA follows gold from its creation through to its discovery right up until the current day. The Eureka story is told as part of this but in a completely new way and within the context of a much larger story incorporating the history of the local Aboriginal people. AURA is much broader, much more exciting, and delves deeper than ‘Blood on the Southern Cross’.

Is the show in multiple languages?
AURA is currently available in English.

Are there any mobility restrictions?
The show has been designed as an inclusive experience, with new enhanced access transporters and well-lit pathways. Wheelchairs can be accommodated. To make sure everything is ready for your arrival, please let us know if you require a wheelchair ahead of your visit.

Is food and drink permitted on the show?
Food and drink will be available as part of a pre-show dinner. No food or drink may be consumed during the show. See the Aura Dinner menu below.

Are photographs or film permitted throughout the show?
Flash photography is strictly forbidden during the show.

Are strollers allowed on the show?
