Victoria’s Sovereign Hill will soon boast new event and cultural spaces following a $6 million investment from the state government’s Regional Tourism Investment Fund.

The development project includes a new pavilion catering for corporate functions or events for up to 500 people and the Waterside and Wadawurrung Cultural Precinct, a state-of-the-art space to encourage people to learn about the Wadawurrung people.

Sovereign Hill’s gold panning precinct is set to be rejuvenated, with upgrades focused on enhancing events and experiences at night.

Funding will also contribute to a new ‘Valley of Light’, set to attract events of up to 5000 people.

“We’re investing in these projects to make sure Sovereign Hill remains one of Victoria’s favourite tourist attractions well into the future,” said Minster for Tourism and Major Events Martin Pakula.
