  • WE had a great afternoon at Highfields Pioneer Village. The atmosphere is lovely. Interesting vintage car and bicycle collection. We had two 8 year old boys that had room to run around, and they loved the pioneer cottage and there are cockatoos and turkeys that gobble which they found highly entertaining.
  • Great place to learn some local history. The park improves every time we visit with more to see and read.
  • very interesting lots of old buildings full of yester year items, heaps of machinery. recommend to all.
  • Had an awesome time with the family at the Easter festivities. Highly recommend it for all!
  • The mini train ride was ok but a very short experience and there was a separate fee to enter the Pioneer Village with little or poor explanstion on what to expect. A disappointment but still recommend a visit - it is unique.
