Sovereign Hill

Took a trip over to Sovereign Hill yesterday, which is a recreation of a 19th century mining town, and fair play – it was pretty good. They have a bunch of diff stuff going on like a guided tour of a gold mine, horse and carriage rides, gold pouring, candle making, musket firing, live “period” shows etc. All in all it’s pretty good – lots of people walking around in vintage costume, went on the gold mine tour, saw gold being poured and checked out all the old machinery of the battery house (where the quartz is smashed up) and the like. Decent day out =)
