In what can only be described as an incredibly generous offer, Sovereign Hill,  in support of the Victorian Bushfire Recovery, would like to offer free entry to their Outdoor Museum and Gold Museum to all emergency services workers and their families.

This extremely popular tourist spot in Ballarat also invites all residents of the six Victorian local government areas that have been declared to be in a State of Disaster to attend free of charge.  The areas are:

  • East Gippsland Shire
  • Mansfield Shire
  • Wellington Shire
  • Rural City of Wangaratta
  • Towong Shire
  • Alpine Shire

Residents of the three Alpine Resorts – Mount Buller, Mount Hotham and Falls Creek are also considered to be part of the State of Disaster.  After a harrowing experience for many, Sovereign Hill's CEO hopes this will offer some ability for quality family time and some respite from the gravity of individual circumstances during this terrible time.

How To Redeem:

Arrive at Sovereign Hill on your day of choice and present your emergency service ID (Emergency Services volunteers and workers) or drivers licence (community members) to receive entry.

This offer is valid until 29 February 2020
