Booking Information

Mailing List: To make a booking, schools MUST be on our mailing list. To be placed on the list please contact us with the following information:

• School name and address

• School email address and phone number

• School contact person: name and email address


All schools on the mailing list will receive information regarding booking processes and will be invited to apply for bookings from the opening date each year.

Bookings for the Sovereign Hill Costumed Schools program are opened each year in Term 1 for the subsequent year. For example, bookings for 2024 programs open on 30 January 2023.

The Costumed School program is in high demand and schools are advised to submit applications as soon as bookings are opened.

Group Sizes:
The maximum number of students per costumed school is limited to 30. When booking, please ensure your estimate of numbers includes any projected growth. Underestimating numbers can cause significant issues.

The Sovereign Hill Hotel offers clean, comfortable and secure accommodation for school groups.

Onsite accommodation requirements must be included on the Sovereign Hill Costumed Schools booking request form. The costume program and accommodation needs will be processed at the same time.

All catering requirements for school groups can be easily accommodated, whether staying on-site, off-site or on a day trip. Please contact: 03 5337 1188 or email for catering packages, options and pricing.

Self Catering: As part of the strict costuming expectations, no modern packaging is allowed. All food must be wrapped in a tea towel or in a brown paper bag. We suggest fruit is the best option for morning tea. When costumed, water bottles are not permitted, drinking taps are available at each school.
