Managed a bit of a sleep in this morning till 6.30am. Had an easy morning and left just before 10am for Sovereign Hill. This is a 1850s real life museum set at one of Australia’s biggest gold fields. We had a great day and found all the staff (dressed in period costumes) to be very helpful and full of information about the gold rush days.
The girls enjoyed panning for gold and going for a ride on the horse and cart.
It was very cold day and it was nice to stop inside for lunch and warm up.
The snow on main street was fun and later the girls enjoyed the snow slide and playing in the man-made snow. Mind you it seemed cold enough to be really snowing.
We left around 3.30pm and headed back to the cabin to warm up. Later tonight we head back to see the Blood on the Southern Cross show.
LATER : The show was really great. It was very cold but we were expecting that.
