Site of the Eureka Stockade Pageant,
1954. Ballarat Heritage Services Picture Collection
This will be the scene of to-day's Eureka pageant at Sovereign Hill, where a clearance and levelling job has been done to allpw for the slabbed stockade (left foreground), and the small hillock (centre), where the soldiery will be situated. The actual Eureka battle site is in the centre background, a mile or so away. This area of Golden Point is also historic ground. Just in front of the "Stockade" to the left is Poverty Point, where Dunlop and Egan made their first gold finds in this vicinity.
