Step back in time at Timbertown Wauchope, a family-friendly attraction depicting the colonial era of a sawmiller’s village in northern New South Wales. Located on 39 hectares (87 acres) of coastal blackbutt (a species of eucalyptus) forests, this site is an interactive village-museum opened in 1976. The area’s key attraction is a working full-size narrow-gauge steam train, which rides on a short circuit track within and around the village. You can also choose to explore the area on horse and carriage rides. There are several businesses operating in the village, including a blacksmith, timber furniture maker, and a souvenir/confectionery shop. You can purchase local woodwork, artwork, and craft items from a number of skilled village artisans.

  • Went here as a kid in the 70's, and took my 9 year old this week. Brilliant. At first you think "daggy", but do all the things here and you will have a great day. Allow about 2-3 hours, and do the min...  read more »
  • Timbertown was such a great place to visit. The staff are so friendly, especially the Bullock Driver. We panned for gold, rode in an old steam train and had a glimpse of what life must have been like ...  read more »
  • Would like to see some of the old things preserved and restored. Maybe TAFE could get on board and help them out?? Roofs needed cleaning before they rust out - just full of leaves. That said the attra...  read more »
  • Last time I went to Timbertown I recived very poor service fom the woman at the frount desk. As she must have been in a bad mood. Making me feel like it was a experience I do not want to incounter again. But apart from her the rest of the people were very kind and helpful.
  • Lovely old school attraction - the sort I used to go to as a kid and you dont really find anymore. There is a steam train, olden days town, horse and carriage and my favourite - the bullocks show! Probably needs a bit of a tidy ups - why don't you have a town working bee for Timbertown - it brings in a lot of visitors to the town. I would recommend for families - my 3 kids had a great time, we did too.
  • i love timber town. It was well worth the money. Only thing i personally did not like is they don't have the paddle boats, the bush ranger or the girl on the train running away with her boyfriend into the bush anymore. They were the best things about timber town now they are not there. Other then that it was great! The best things there now are the bullocks the man that looks after them is very nice and the train driver was really great! WELL WORTH THE PRICE! I loved all the old buildings and learning a lot. I go there every 2 years since i was 5 and i will keep going :) (i am now 20).
  • Best Fun Park in Wauchope
  • Awesome. Looking forward to coming back.
