Monday 16 March 09 – Ballarat VIC

It was raining when we awoke and the forecast was for isolated showers during the day.  At 9.45am we were at the Ballarat Gold Museum before going into Sovereign shortly thereafter.

Sovereign Hill is a wonderful replication of the early days in Ballarat when the city survived on gold.  The displays covers both alluvial mining and the latter deep mining of quartz to recover the gold.  We visited two mines, watched a majority of the displays, took several hundred photographs and generally had a good day. One of the displays involved the melting and then pouring of a gold ingot said to be worth $141,000.  A replica mine has been created on the site and this was the highlight of the visit.

Our friends had arrived from Melbourne when we returned to the caravan park and after a long happy hour, we had a BBQ, watched Underbelly and then headed to bed.  More showers are forecast for tomorrow.
