Blood on the Southern Cross
The Eureka Stockade of 1854 was a defining moment in the development of democracy in Australia.
Blood on the Southern Cross tells the dramatic story of the Eureka Uprising by Ballarat`s miners against unjust and corrupt colonial rulers.
The show is set across Sovereign Hill`s 64-acre site. Under the stars, on moonlit diggings, audiences are surrounded by the action and, ultimately, caught in the crossfire as the battle rages.
The production features state-of-the-art lighting and amazing special effects. Peter Lalor is larger than life on an aqua screen. Images of trapeze artists and acrobats fly across a huge circus tent. The Eureka Hotel bursts into flame, and rain falls in a blinding storm.
Blood on the Southern Cross runs for 90 minutes, seven nights a week (subject to availability). Special packages are available that include entry to Sovereign Hill, dinner and accommodation at the Sovereign Hill Lodge.
`State-of-the-art lighting and a dazzling array of special effects are the making of a great sound-and-light show - and Blood on the Southern Cross does not disappoint!`
