Questions to Sovereign Hills

by tvious

Hello,thank you if anyone could assist in the following questions :-

1. How far is S.Hills away from the city ?

2. What are the least expensive transport to S.Hills and at the same time the most convenient and shortest travelling time ? ( apologize for such 'demanding question' )

3. Are there any entry fees for S.Hills ? If so, what are the cost ?

4. Am planning for a full 1 day tour to S.Hills, possible to advise on the itinerary for the day ? ( perhaps along the way,interesting places I could drop by )

TQ again.

Hi

Here is the website for Sovereign Hill which can answer most of your questions.

http://www.sovereignhill.com.au/?id=sovhill

I noticed a single adult entry was $39-50 but there are concessions and a family package.

It is in Ballarat which is about an hour train ride from Melbourne City. The web site says there is a courtesy bus which meets the train and takes you to the site.

It is easy to spend a whole day at Sovereign Hill - you can get a program at the ticket office which gives the times of guided activities. In between you can just wander around. I enjoyed the underground tour which was conducted by a lady taking the role of a miner's wife.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

That garden in Melbourne....

by socs

Visit the Royal Botanical Garden right at the heart of the city...its lovely and its free! When I was going around the Botanical Garden, there were setting it up for a live staging of Midsummer Night's Dream. It would have been a great event to go to, unfortunately, I didnt stay long enough to see it.

To Hell or Melbourne

by iandsmith

I stood one night, unknowingly, beside the river when all was suddenly light. From whence had this emanated I immediately wondered.
It was over in moments, so I was unsure, then it burst with a roar and it filled the sky.
There was a time, co-inciding with the massive gas flame bursts, when I thought I had done Hell and Melbourne in one hit.
The quote however, comes from an earlier time, when the skipper of the Marco Polo, a famous and fast clipper ship of the 1800's, sought to break records (see my Treasury page) for the passage from England. Today's "hell" is supplied by the casino (in more ways than one perhaps!) in the form of half a dozen pillars, somewhat reminiscent of the monolith in 2001 - A Space Odyssey, that belch forth flames every hour on the hour for five minutes in a dramatic (and very warming if you're near them) sychronized display.
This timed entertainment commences with small flames, then medium, then the guaranteed-to-grab-your-attention full thrust and roar.
Several restaurants nearby overlook the flames and outside seats are often hard to come by, such is the spectacle.
It's very dramatic and will certainly provide justification for dragging the children away from their beloved computer screens for a time anyway.

drop by the NATIONAL GALLERY...

by Krystynn

drop by the NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA. Located at: 180 St Kilda Road (just a short stroll across the bridge from Flinders Street Station), the National Gallery of Victoria has a fine collection of both international and local paintings including such Australian classics as: Tom Roberts 'Shearing the Rams', Frederick McCubbin's 'The Pioneer', and, a fine collection of contemporary Aboriginal paintings.

It regularly hosts major overseas exhibitions. And there's an excellent art bookshop and a restaurant here too.

January Packing Tips - Summer

by ATXtraveler

Summer in Melbourne is quite warm, yet not so inviting. On New Year's Day this year, the weather was 45 degrees (C) in the CBD. If you are travelling for pleasure, I would highly recommend short sleeves and shorts, or for women sundresses. Bring your "sunnies" and your sun-block. As the ads say, "slather" it on.

Back one small coat in your bag just in case of wind or the occassional mini rain burst, but most of all bring very warm weather clothes!

Close to your trip, check out weather.com for more accurate weather predictions.

Hot Air Ballooning!

by peeweekathi

Ever considered having a view of Melbourne, from a Hot Air Balloon? No?
Well, I highly recommend it! Another part of birthday celebrations (2008 is great so far!!)

This is definitely an unusual way to start your day and get a view of Melbourne, not many get. Good news, the experience and views are just FABULOUS! Bad news, you have to get up at between 3.30 and 4.00 A.M. (!!!) to do it, but it is well worth it. Plenty of time to sleep later! Flight area dependent on weather of the day. And, you can choose to stand back & watch the balloon being set up and packed away, or dig in and help, which is also great fun and part of the experience and you're encouraged to do so, so don't be shy!

Several companies to choose from, all roughly in the same price range and breakfast included in price. Champagne supplied at breakfast, to toast your successful flight. The company I went with, also gave a 'Certificate' of achievment, which, personally, I love getting! It's always nice to have something like that, go with a great photo, to remember such action packed activities:)

Total time: Approximately 4-6 hours.

Balloon flights also available over the wineries of the Yarra Valley.
