Sovereign Hill

Yesterday, in defiance of the cold and the rain, we allowed ourselves to be dragged out by the lovely Emma to Sovereign Hill. For those of you unfamiliar with it, it’s basically a small mining town which prospered during the goldrush of the 1850s, and it has been preserved or recreated as a tourist attraction. All the staff wear period costume, and most of the buildings and services are as they would have been back in the golden days (pun totally intended). Except I’m pretty sure the miners never had ATMs.

So along we went, and we bought traditional boiled lollies and the kids dipped candles and we had a carriage ride, all paid for via authentic, original EFTPOS.

The kids had a great time, and I must admit, I enjoyed it too! We’ll have to go again when the weather is nicer, though.
