Participants of our Sovereign Hill Tour will spend the day engulfed by the “gold rush”. We will journey to the to the capital the Australian Goldfields, the town of Ballarat, where we will visit Sovereign Hill, an open air museum of gold mines, and delve into the atmosphere of the auriferous 1850s.

The streets of the town are filled with locals in 19th-century style clothing, as well as marching English soldiers and policemen chasing outlaws. The Sovereign Hill excursion includes a visit to a gold-bearing mine and Gold Museum. You will have the opportunity to participate in candle making and candy making, take a ride on an ancient coach, play a game of old bowling, make purchases in shops of the town of gold diggers and, of course, try your luck and pan for gold in a creek. You will also be able to have lunch in a 19th-century style café and try some traditional Devonshire tea.

    Laura W., Tacoma, United States - Yarra Valley tour, May'16

    I planned an incentive trip for some of our customers. I needed to book something for their guests to do on the day we had our customers at our corporate offices and decided a Yarra Valley Wine Tour was in order. We decided to book through Bilby Travel. I was a bit nervous because I wasn't going to be at the hotel when they picked up our guests and I wasn't going to be on the tour nor had we used Bilby before. Max at Bilby coordinated everything, picked up our guests in the hotel lobby and took them for the day. All the guests reported back that Max was a great tour guide, a great driver, and they had a wonderful day with him. They told me I should use him again. The day included wineries, lunch, a chocolate stop and a cheese business. We will be using him again in February 2017!

    The tour was very well organised. From the initial enquiry right through to the day of the tour everything was planned and communicated well. Thanks Max & Michael for the wonderful organisation, the team and myself had a wonderful day and it was beyond what we expected. Will definitely use your services in the future. Thank You!
