Visit the Winter Wonderlights Christmas in July event at Sovereign Hill, Saturday 1st July – Sunday 30th.
Sovereign Hill, 90 mins from Melbourne, is one of Australia’s most iconic tourist attractions, recreating an 1850s gold mining town. It’s like stepping back in time, from the hustle and bustle of Main Street where costumed ladies and gents parade their new-found wealth, to the excitement of the Red Hill Gully Diggings where visitors can pan for real gold, venture underground on a fully-guided gold mine tour, catch a horse-drawn coach and tour the town, visit the 1850s style shops, and watch the wheelwrights, candlemakers and confectioners ply their trades.
During July, visitors can enjoy a full day of Christmas excitement with activities for all ages, and as the sun goes down, Sovereign Hill will light up spectacularly each evening after 5.45pm.
During the day, the entire Sovereign Hill township will evoke a sense of old-world wonder. Visitors can stroll down Main Street as snow-flakes fall at regular intervals over the Victorian-style buildings, decorations fill the window displays, the smell of Christmas treats and spices fill the air, and traditional Christmas-themed pantomimes are performed.
At night, Main Street will sparkle with an amazing light projection show with over 20 of Sovereign Hill’s buildings lit up with large-scale image projections and Christmas animations. Children can also catch the Gingerbread Man as he dashes from building to building, peeking out from the Christmas themed lights and animations!
The cottages and gardens overlooking Main Street will also be filled with fairy lights, and candles will dance in shop windows, so no matter where you look, the old-world charm of the 1850s will bask Sovereign Hill in a golden, yuletide glow. Entertainers, including illusionists and acrobats, will also perform, delighting visitors with their magical skills.
