  • Great step back in time with many interesting exhibits. Reminiscing for the more senior visitors and educational for the others to see how pioneers lived and did their work and chores. Get along and enjoy a cup of tea and some damper.
  • So much fun for the kids. Really takes you back in time. Can't wait for all the add attractions every year
  • Great place to go. Heaps of old working and static machinery etc. Only downside is the entry fee. I know that it is volunteer based, and they need to raise money in order to keep it operating, but if the entry fee was lower, more people would go through the gate.
  • Great fun and beautiful. The kids played for hours in all the different areas. Loved the damper and the petting zoo as well.
  • We had a great old timey time. It's like having an Amish village 20 minutes out of town 😁
