Sovereign Hill Masterplan Phase 1b

Delivery of The Gold Pavilion, a new entry and orientation building is at the heart of the next phase of development at Sovereign Hill, Ballarat’s award-winning outdoor museum.

Teamed new events space known as the Valley of Light, and more classrooms for the Sovereign Hill School, delivery of Master Plan Phase 1b will enhance the experience of visitors and broaden the appeal of one of Australia’s favourite tourist attractions.
As an enduring drawcard for international and interstate visitors, Sovereign Hill will play a critical role in the post-pandemic economic recovery of Ballarat, Western Victoria and Victoria.
This project will create 96.2 jobs in 2025 and 155 jobs by 2040 because of increased visitation. It will deliver significant educational, social, and cultural benefits and move Sovereign Hill toward its goal of net zero energy, waste, and water.
