Step back in time and experience Australia’s exciting goldrush days at Sovereign Hill. Set on a former goldmining site, this award winning outdoor museum recreates in fascinating detail the hustle and bustle of life in the 1850s.
Sovereign Hill’s Main Street is busy with people in colourful costumes and horse-drawn vehicles.
At the Hope Bakery, pastry cakes and breads are freshly baked each day in the wood-fired brick oven.

Scanned from 35mm negative of photo from family album. Taken with Pentax SLR and Pentax 18-55mm lens using Kodak ISO 400 film.

  • Gosh! Thanks Audrey. I just acquired a negative scanner to start restoring some of my old 35mm shots and this was on one of the strips at the top of the “shoe box”. Taken about 16 years ago. Absolutely thrilled to have this featured.

  • Thanks for your kind comment Clive. I haven’t been back since I took these photos about 16 years ago so it’s high time I revisited with our grandson. Tony
