winter wonderlights @ sovereign hill - ballarat

This is one of our most fave things to do each Winter and this year is no exception. They have extended their annual lights festival to also include thousands of lovely fairy lights and a marquee with extra activities for the family too. There is also an additional entrance opening making for a swift entrance - this event gets very busy and crowded but the smiles and joy on your little ones faces is worth it. Oh and PLEASE wrap up nice and warm - it can get REALLY cold here.

Get set to be mesmerised as traditional Christmas carols fill the air, Christmas trees and decorations line the museum Main Street, and faux snow falls at regular intervals. With hands-on activities for the children, a full theatre program, and delicious treats, you'll be immersed in a traditional festive experience.

When the sun sets, you'll be transported to another world as the sparkling grand-scale images and bright winter wonderlights dance along the building facades. This is a truly magical experience that has to be seen to believed, so if you’re yet to experience the Wonderlights, now is your chance!
