    Great Tour

    My sole purpose for taking this tour was to see the Wombats & Devils at Ballarat Wildlife Park. The park although small was worth it. My VIP tour allowed me to hold Billie and now I have a keepsake photo that I will cherish forever. I also ...enjoyed taking the sights at Sovereign Hill and learning about the Goldrush.
