    Join us this year for a Christmas in July with a difference. 

    Bring the family to enjoy a day at Sovereign Hill  and then the Winter Wonderlights spectacular will be lighting up Sovereign Hill once the sun sets

    The event will likely see the Victorian-style buildings along the main street come alive through the magic of large-scale light projections, Christmas animations and a trail of fairy lights throughout Sovereign Hill’s garden in the dazzling ‘Winter Wonderlights’ show. This show, set to Christmas-themed music, is sure to be bigger and brighter than ever before with more buildings lit up in impressive style, evoking the spirit and enchantment of Christmas. Plus, as always, there will be faux snow falling and that’s pretty magical in itself.


    Adults $60, Children 5-15 $30 

    This event will sell out quickly, so please register and pay soon. 

    We are hoping to have dinner in Winter Wonderlights, details and cost to be confirmed later. 

    Stay over at the Best Western Ballarat Suites or make you own accommodation booking - sooner rather than later as hotels seem to be busy.

    Saturday night dinner at members own cost at Robin Hood Hotel Ballarat menu 7.15 pm. 

    On Sunday enjoy a relaxing walk around Historic Ballarat and Lake Wendouree before a leisurely drive home on the Sunday. 

     All accommodation bookings must be made by members.

    FULL ITINERARY AND DRIVE INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE SENT OUT IN THE REMINDER EMAIL

    We will have 6 pit lane garages for all competing.


    What is a Regularity ?


    It is a timed competition event, where you nominate a lap time which you need to get close to each lap.  This is not racing door to door, but allows you to drive at a pace that is comfortable for you and your car. 


    This is available to all current members of any BMW Affliated club.


    You will need to find your own accomodation and transpotation to get there. 

    A deposit of *$600 is payable on registration.   Full payment will be required by 1 July 2022.

    Full details will be sent out on the running of the event in July with further paperowrk.
