Sovereign Hill is a purpose built 'themed town' to show you what the goldmines town used to look like... they even have a river in the town where you can pan for gold (that is put in the river each morning - only specks, but you catch my drift!).
We went did a tour of a 'pretend' goldmine, which was built for the tourist industry, but you also get to sit in a real mine that was discovered when they were building the pretend one!
We also watched melted gold get turned into a goldbar worth $80,000.00.... nice!
I liked Sovereign Hill, it reminded me of a really lame Disneyland!
We went to the cinema tonight and watched 'The Guardian'.... I really liked this film, but it was a bit predictable!
