Visitors can take a stroll down Main Street as snow-flakes fall at regular intervals over the Victorian-style buildings, decorations fill the window displays, the smell of Christmas treats and spices fill the air, and traditional Christmas-themed pantomimes are performed. Find Sir Ginger getting up to mischief on Main Street. Watch flames erupt from the Sovereign Hill chimney. At night, as the light fades, Main Street will sparkle with an amazing light projection show with the buildings on Main Street lit up with large-scale image projections and Christmas animations. This show, set to Christmas-themed music, wander through fairy-lit laneways, dance in the (faux) snow or let the European street market tempt you. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity of visiting Sovereign Hill during Winter Wonderlights!

Snowfalls on Main Street
Marvel as Sovereign Hill turns into a snowy winter wonderland. The famous St Nicholas might even be there!
Main Street will be transformed by sparkling grand-scale Christmas images dancing along its familiar facades. ‘Winter Wonderlights’ begins as soon as the sky is dark enough. Times therefore vary slightly each evening depending on light conditions.
