Grab the family and escape to another world these school holidays with the brand new
"Ballarat Golden Ticket". The ticket allows visitors up to three days of fun-filled discounted access to the top two family attractions in Ballarat - Kryal Castle and Sovereign Hill.

The Ballarat Family Golden Ticket costs only $189.00 for two adults and up to four children - ideal for those families wanting to escape the city and head to the sights and sounds of Ballarat, just over an hour's drive from Melbourne.

Ballarat is a great destination for a family getaway. It has so many things on offer for day trips and extended stays. From wildlife parks, gardens, cycling trails, adventure playgrounds and walking paths, it's all in Ballarat alongside a dynamic dining and entertainment scene. Spending your days at Sovereign Hill and Kryal Castle will keep the kids entertained for hours on end with fun and games and a lesson in history at the same time!
At the internationally acclaimed tourism icon Sovereign Hill, you can travel back to Australia's halcyon 1850's Gold Rush Era. You can take part in colourful candle dipping, bowling at the 1850s bowling saloon, horse and coach rides, the spectacular $150,000 gold pour, underground mine tours and of course, pan for real gold! In addition these school holidays, Sovereign Hill will host a range of activities including theatre shows, Scottish Dance Lessons, Easter crafts as well as several exhibitions at the Gold Museum.
PLUS Sovereign Hill is continuing its Free Second Day offer, entitling all visitors to return for the second day at no extra charge. For the full list of special school holiday activities see the end of this release.

And no visit to Ballarat is complete without checking out the newly revamped Kryal Castle - Australia's only medieval theme park. Meet fairies, wizards, goblins - the whole Kryal clan - whilst exploring this amazing fantasy world. Be sure not to miss the brand new Animal Nursery, The Medieval Weapons Display and Jester Theatre Shows, as well as the ever popular Daily Joust, Village Trader Market and so much more!

Just for these school holidays, learn all about The Legend of Midhir & Étain - the most ancient of well-known Irish love tales - try and spot the Prince and Princess as they roam the castle in search of each other, hear of their adventures at Fairy and Goblin Storytelling time and take part in the Midhir & Étain treasure hunt! Enjoy Celtic Folk Music, Irish themed craft activities and don Tartan sashes- all in the name of King Midhir and Fairy Princess Étain and all the fairy people who once inhabited ancient Ireland.

There is so much to see and do at these two great attractions - both allow adults and kids alike to immerse themselves in their environment with opportunities to dress up, learn about the ways of history and yesteryear- Medieval and Gold Rush - as well as take part in plenty of hands on activities.
