Sovereign Hill Ballarat is an open-air museum that recreates the goldfields town and the lives of its people during the 1850s gold rush.

To bring more of the history to life Sovereign Hill has just launched a new campaign called ‘The Story Lives on’. As part of this, they have created three beautiful, cinematic films, depicting the hopes, dreams and struggles of people who lived on the goldfields.  

The first film has been released, and the remaining two will be launched soon:

Sovereign Hill

The Bounty (first release): tells the story of a young girl and boy on the goldfields, admiring the sweet treats of the lolly shop. Suddenly, we see the girl rushing out the door with the boy in tow, dodging and weaving obstacles as they rush down the crowded main street and alleyways. Reaching their school, the girl triumphantly pulls out a heaping bag of lollies from her pocket, and the children stare wide-eyed at the bounty of sweets!

The Nugget: tells the story of a female gold prospector, panning for gold, and dreaming about the riches that it might bring.

The Struggle: tells the story of a miner, living in squalid conditions, desperate to support his wife and child.
