Get an in-depth dose of Gold Rush-era history on this comprehensive, full day tour from Melbourne to Ballarat as well as Victoria's iconic Sovereign Hill historic town attraction all in the one itinerary. Embark on a journey back in time on a day trip from Melbourne, along the Western Highway following the old stagecoach route to Ballarat. Ballarat is a Victorian era boomtown made famous by the Gold Rush of the 1850’s. Nicknamed “The Golden City”, this thriving city is well known for its history, culture and its well-preserved Victorian era heritage. Enjoy a fully guided tour of Ballarat’s quaint township, immerse yourself in its fascinating history, its beautiful gardens and see its most iconic landmarks and public statues as you're taken by experienced guides to learn all its facts and inner workings.

This sightseeing tour also takes you to visit Sovereign Hill, a unique outdoor heritage museum where history comes to life courtesy of both its era-accurate architecture and in-costume and in-character village of dedicated actors. People from all over the world poured into Ballarat to seek their fortune and now you can discover its distinctive Victorian shops, explore the deep underground tramways and watch traditional blacksmiths and craftsmen at work. Here you can also try your hand at panning for gold at Red Gully Creek and visit the site of the first and only civil uprising; the 1854 Battle of the Eureka Stockade, which is a defining moment in Australia’s history. You will be amazed at the authenticity of this historic place, there is so much to see and do and you can relive the days of the famous Ballarat Gold Rush. With complimentary hotel pickups and drop offs, a comfortable air-conditioned coach, and informative commentary, you'll come away with a whole new level of appreciation for 1800's Victoria.

In addition to all of the great inclusions, guests are also given the opportunity to add entry into Ballarat Wildlife Park to their package. The park is filled with a range of native Aussie animals for which you can get up close and personal with. Tours depart every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings at 8:20am and return to Melbourne around 5:30pm.

Fell far short of expectations, realise you are not the operator, that was AAT Kings. No hotel pickup for me so told me to be at Day Tours at 7.45am where I proceeded to wait for another hour before we left. Biggest disappointment was the "luxury coach", 24 guests crammed into a 26 seater bus, no WC, poor sound system and poor suspension, a very uncomfortable journey in all. Hardy saw anything of Ballarat itself, more or less a drive by, and the left at Sovereign Hill for hours, far too long. Would not book with AAT again, very disappointing and fell far short of my expectations.

Go back in time to the 1800's, pan for gold and take photos in traditional dress from the old days. Make sure you dig deep when panning for gold to find the biggest nuggets of gold.
