Our Excursion to Sovereign Hill


Our Term 4 Inquiry unit is investigating ‘What are the significant events and people that have changed Australia?’ Our Friday 23rd October all the year 3/4s headed to Sovereign Hill to discover what life was like in the 1850s and how the Gold Rush made a significant impact on life in Australia. After what seemed like an eternity in the bus we finally arrived in Ballarat. Click on the link below to see photos from our amazing day at Sovereign Hill:

    Hi 3/4D
    My favourite part of Sovereign Hill was the Education centre and the Red Hill Mine tour
    If I had a job in the 1850’s I would be the postmaster because it is simple enough and he gets a cool house.

    It is many years since I have been to Sovereign Hill but it is a wonderful place to explore and experience an important part of Victoria’s history. I loved looking at your photos and know you had a great day 3/4 D.

    Dear miss Dickson and 3/4D,
    My favourite part at Sovereign Hill was the bowling because I liked the heaviness of the balls and pins.
    I learnt life in 1850s was hard.
    I would want to be a policeman because I could stop people from going in the goldfield.
    Sincerely Joel

    my favorite moment of sovereign hill was finding gold while gold panning and my favorite job would be a blacksmith so I can give people horse shoes.
