What to do in Ballarat this winter school holidays

There's so much to love about heading to Ballarat for the winter school holidays (27 June – 12 July).

Embrace the chill and step back in time to the 1850s gold rush at Sovereign Hill, enter a world of magic and myth at Kryal Castle, feed a free-roaming kangaroo at the Ballarat Wildlife Park, or go head-to-head with the kids at Gold Rush Mini Golf.
