Sovereign Hill will light up the night between June 29 and July 21 in Australia’s largest ever light projection spectacle at one site.
Tickets are now available for the multi award-winning Winter Wonderlights, part of the Ballarat Winter Festival.
Winter Wonderlights will shine brighter in 2019 than ever before with an expanded footprint and more light projections.
As the sound of the brass band echoes throughout the township and anticipation of snowfall fills the air, visitors will be swept up in the excitement of a special European-style Christmas.
During the day, visitors can stroll down Main Street as faux snowflakes fall at regular intervals over the Victorian-style buildings, decorations bring window displays to life, the smell of Christmas treats fill the air and traditional pantomimes are performed.
Visitors will also delight in the European Christmas market where they can purchase enchanting decorations or try traditional treats including a steaming cup of mulled wine or Sovereign Hill’s famous toffee apples.
As the sun goes down, Sovereign Hill will light up spectacularly after 5.45pm. Saint Nicholas will appear each day and visitors can watch the ladies and gents parade up and down Main Street as they celebrate a Victorian-style Christmas.
Find Sir Ginger getting up to mischief, watch flames erupt from the Sovereign Hill chimney, wander through the lit-up laneways and dance in the snow.
Last year’s Winter Wonderlights attracted an impressive 95,000 visitors over the three-week period. The outdoor museum also racked up its busiest day in its 49-year history, with more than 10,000 people walking through the gates on July 15.
