Doctor Blake's Ballarat

Doctor Blake’s Ballarat

11 April - 3 September 2017

Doctor Blake’s Ballarat offers a glimpse into the world of The Doctor Blake Mysteries - the internationally successful Australian drama series.

Get up close to the props, costumes, photography and set sketches that bring Doctor Blake to life, and see the historic Ballarat locations featured in the show.

Be greeted at the door by Doctor Blake’s iconic 1937 Coventry Standard car and take a ‘selfie’ behind the doctor’s desk. Step into a set and relax in his lounge room or even the surgery waiting room!

Children and young adults are invited to spend time in the Costume Corner in our foyer. Submit your best costume sketches for display and you just might be the Winner of the Month! Winners will have their work showcased on Facebook each month during the exhibition.

You might even like to join the Gold Museum’s curators every Wednesday at 3.30 pm for a free Doctor Blake’s Ballarat Floor Talk. No bookings are required. Tours are free with a Gold Museum or Sovereign Hill ticket.
