VISITORS to Sovereign Hill have a few days left to see Blood on the Southern Cross before the sound-and-light show packs up shop for several months.
Set under the night skies at Sovereign Hill, Blood on the Southern Cross tells the story of the dramatic Eureka Rebellion using only voices, dazzling sound-and-light effects, and a stunning open-air set. Visitors travel across the site on a comfortable transporter and view much of the action from the re-created Free Trade Hotel on the Eureka Diggings.
Over 10,000 shows have been performed since BOSC opened in 1993, and in excess of 1.9 million people have ventured into the night to see the story.
According to Sovereign Hill interim chief executive officer Terry Lloyd, the production features state-of-the-art lighting and amazing special effects.
“Blood on the Southern Cross tells the most incredible story of a defining moment in the development of democracy in Australia; that of the Eureka Stockade," he said.
"We’ve seen almost two million visitors come from all over the world to witness our dynamic show over the past two decades and we’d encourage visitors to book in for their chance to see the show in its final season."
The Blood on the Southern Cross final season will end on July 29. The show will run each night, and bookings are essential.
