Celebrate Christmas in July at Sovereign Hill’s Winter Wonderlights and watch as 19th-century Ballarat is transformed with light and sound. Electric Canvas, the team behind Melbourne’s White Night, will use their magic to illuminate 17 of Sovereign Hill’s Victorian-style buildings along Main Street, including the New York Bakery, United States Hotel, and Apothecaries’ Hall. As you wander through Main Street, traditional carols and the scent of Christmas sweets will fill the air, and you may even find yourself standing in one of four daily snowfalls. Traditional Christmas crafts, theatrical shows and a visit from St Nicholas will keep you busy during the day, before the nightly Wonderlights show. Sovereign Hill’s old-world charm and Christmas cheer will coincide with Ballarat’s Winterlude Festival.
