Sovereign Hill in Ballarat

The last stop on our roadtrip was gold miners city Ballarat. Sovereign Hill is the main attraction there and gives you an impression of what Ballarat looked like at the times of the gold rush: Vintage buildings and local people dressed up like from the 19th century, you can visit a gold mine, watch how a gold bullion is poured, etc. It was fun to spend a day there and I finally had the chance to pan for gold on my own. Not as easy as it looks but after a while you gain some practice and have the first small nuggets in your pan ;-)
