Sovereign Hill’s annual Winter Wonderlights event returns this year from Saturday 29 June until Sunday 21 July, 2019.
During the day visitors can enjoy fun-filled theatre performances, join in Christmas themed arts and crafts, stock up on traditional Christmas decorations, sample delicious, limited edition Winter Wonderlights lemon meringue drops, and enjoy faux snow fall at over the Victorian-style buildings. As the smell of Christmas treats fill the air, visitors will be swept up in the excitement of a special European-style Christmas.
At night, over 25 buildings will come alive with large-scale, Christmas-themed light projections, the largest light projection spectacle ever staged in one site anywhere in Australia.
