Lamplight tour portrait

Sovereign Hill is a re-creation of an early goldrush town with gravel roads, dimly-lit streets, bluestone gutters and uneven, hilly terrain. To ensure that patrons can safely navigate pathways and stairs, a good level of mobility is required for this walking tour. Guests in wheelchairs are welcome and can be accommodated provided advance notice is provided.

Recommended for ages 15 and above. Younger children welcome at parental discretion. Themes include illness, accident, death and the supernatural.

We recommend guests arrive 20-30 minutes before the tour commences to enjoy drinks and bar snacks while they await their guide in the period-style United States Hotel Bar.
Drinks are available at bar prices during dinner. EFTPOS is available.

Please wear appropriate clothing and shoes suitable for uneven ground for this all weather, approx 70-minute tour. As you will be outdoors for some of the experience, a poncho or umbrella is recommended if rain is expected.
