1. Read the brochure for Sovereign Hill.

Visit the gold mine at Sovereign Hill in Australia and travel back in time to the Gold
Rush days of the 1850s. At this unusual outdoor museum, you can look for gold and
experience one of the most exciting and lively times in history.
Sovereign Hill is the largest outdoor museum in Australia. There is a small town with
more than 60 old buildings from the 1850s. There are also artifacts from the Gold Rush.
The workers at the park wear clothes from the 1800s. You can watch them doing work
and activities from that period. Some of the workers use very old equipment to melt
gold. Then they make elaborate golden items.
There are many interesting activities for visitors to do at Sovereign Hill, too. You can go
on a horse ride or watch artists making ceramics. You can go under the ground to tour
the gold mines. Most exciting of all, you can look for gold in the sandy floor of the river.
Workers at the park sometimes throw gold in the water. So if you look hard enough, you
will probably find some. If you don’t find any gold in the river, you will find some in the
souvenir shop. There are some great souvenirs to choose from and they aren’t too
expensive.
After a busy day in the park, you can watch a sound and light show about the history of
the mine workers. Then you can enjoy a meal in the restaurant or one of the cafés. You’ll
love the food. Some of the recipes are from the 1800s. Enjoy your visit!
