Learn about Aboriginal history and living culture at Sovereign Hill

The Sovereign Hill Museums Association has again partnered with the traditional owners of Ballarat through Wadawurrung to bring you the Gnarrwirring Ngitj/Learning Together Program.

Corroboree by Full Moon

Beginning as darkness descends on Sunday 13 October, Corroboree by Full Moon will feature Wadawurrung dancers and their friends from the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in Ballarat. The performance presents an opportunity to learn about the region’s 50,000+ year history and vibrant Aboriginal culture today, and how we can all play a part in caring for Country.

Sovereign Hill’s new adventure Play Space will be open for ticket holders to enjoy prior to the performance. Attendees are encouraged to bring picnics or enjoy dinner at the Sovereign Hill Café until the performance starts. Food with a bush twist will be available for purchase.
