  • 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.
  • Fantastic day out with the kids. The fire station is brilliant
  • Great place to learn some local history. The park improves every time we visit with more to see and read.
  • Amazing place to visit lots of history. Great for kids 😊
  • very interesting lots of old buildings full of yester year items, heaps of machinery. recommend to all.
