  • You really step back in time when you walk into this place. definitely a place to check out while passing thru, the owner has gone great lengths to make it what it is. So many building to look at, def...  more »
  • After visiting Warrnambool this place looks extremely tired, dusty and lots of cobwebs. It's a shame as it has a lot to offer but lacks TLC. Some of the old huts were falling down. 
  • Visited this place as a child and enjoyed it. Recently took my niece and nephews for a day trip and was really disappointed. More than $60 for the 5 of us to get in, and what was there? Some old build...  more »

  • This was an experience that a person has once and never wants to do again. For the expense, it is rundown and a very average experience. For instance, no EFTPOS, buildings that are leaking and musty, no toilet paper in toilets, and mouse poo on exhibits. In addition to that, a lot of the buildings were not even historically what they are displayed as (eg. bank, shops, etc were simply old sleeping quarters.) Use your time and money elsewhere.
  • We called into Old Tailem Town on a Probus Bus Tour in April 2016.We spent over two hours there we need to spend at least another 1 hour to see everything. Well worth the visit if you are interested in local country history. Definitely call in to have a look around- spend a bit of time in all the shops- very interesting items. For a place that does not get a lot of funding or support from Government or local Government and everything is does by the owner-. Not only did he build it but he does all the maintenance himself. There is no volunteer support or help via employment training schemes-- a huge undertaking for one man. It is mind blowing what he has done. Well done-much appreciated and will be back in the future
  • Old Tailem town is one simply awesome place to visit. It's privately owned and you can visit there by paying a little entry fees (remember it's cash only). All the buildings and shops which is hundreds of years old are well preserved there..
  • The construction o the town shows incredible work and vision, and yes, a collection of old buildings well set out, but sadly looks like done on a shoestring: mostly not just old but in bad repair, so not really like it would have looked like in the past- found it rather depressing, overwhelmed by the restoration that needs to be done. ....
  • I went went there for the first time it was absolutely amazing coming from the real world and stepping back in time.
