Finding Gold & Snow

Over the winter we went to Sovereign Hill. An open air museum town set in the 1850's gold rush era.

We got to pan of gold
We took a horse and carriage ride
We made our own coloured candles to take home
We saw tent villages where the miners use to live
The pretty dresses the ladies use to wear
We saw re-enactments
It snowed very fake snow in the main street

There was an ice sculpute display and we got to experience what minus 10 degrees feels like
But most fun of all and my favourite thing of the day was the Ice Slide. My brother, mum and I raced down it about 20 times. I want to go back next year if they have the ice slide again.
