Taken at Sovereign Hill, an award winning tourist attraction in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. Sovereign Hill represents conditions on Ballarat’s early goldfields, where visitors can step back in time and experience Australia’s exciting goldrush days. Set on a former goldmining site, this well run outdoor museum recreates in fascinating detail the hustle and bustle of life in the 1850s.

    Clean, clear and bright. I remember the bar as being quite dreary in natural light. Well done!

  • Thanks Roger. I was in there at the right time on a very sunny day, every other time I’ve been its been dull.
