Sovereign Hill - ADVICE & HELP
I would love to visit Soveriegn Hill, Ballarat and have just been googling for accommodation prices etc. There is SO much information out there but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for, apart from the fact that the Caravan parks are the cheapest type of accommodation. I don't need fancy hotels or eating places - the prices are outrageous.
Has anyone been there - maybe offer me some advice?
I will travel there and back by train from Melbourne. That part is easy. I don't want to go on any guided tours as I hate timetables. I really want to "scratch around in the dirt" - gold fossicking. Will I need special tools for that and, if so, can I hire them in Ballarat?
I'll get back to googling now and try to find a caravan park that's not miles away from the "fossicking department". LOL. I hope I'm making sense.
Would love to hear from anyone who can give me some pointers.
