Rush to Ballarat
Take the V/Line Goldrush Special for a trip back in time to the 1850s and the discovery of gold.
Soverign Hill, in Ballarat, is one of Victoria’s most popular attractions and the Goldrush Special makes it even easier to visit. Take the V/Line train from Southern Cross Station at 9.16am daily and arrive in Ballarat less than 90 minutes later, where a coach will be waiting to take you to Sovereign Hill.
Pan for gold, take a ride in a horse-driven carriage and tour an underground mine during your day at Sovereign Hill. This is a re-creation of an 1850s goldfield on one of the original mining sites. There are working shops, traders, schools and factories, all based on original Ballarat businesses. Make sure you don’t miss any of the daily events that include a spectacular gold pour, where an industrial blacksmith heats the precious metal to more than 1000ºC and pours it into an ingot.

Apart from being dropped directly outside, everyone on the Goldrush Special receives a 10 per cent discount on the entry ticket to Sovereign Hill* and a free Cobb & Co Coach ride during the day.
