We had a wonderful day and unexpected adventures with friendly staff who really believed in what they were doing to preserve the past. Our kids (8,6 and 4) loved all the little kids friendly activities that were so hands on and simple like the treasure hunts, horse cart ride, being involved in the re-enactment, seeing all the old world houses and artefacts for the first time. Highly recommend a visit, very reasonable and unique. A special experience thank you.
I visited the park with my young family on Australia Day as a journey of personal nostalgia, having visited as a schoolboy in about 1970. We all had a great day, and I wish to acknowledge the great work by the volunteers to keep this treasured place alive.
Hi, we had a wonderful day today for Australia day at the Pioneer Village. I heard about it on 2GB during the week when one of the members rang to promote it. I am glad he did. We had a look at all the attractions and most of the stores and had some rides with my son. My wife bought some antique crockery which she loves.
My family were recently at The Australiana Pioneer Village, so much to do, not enough hours to do it all, will definitely be going back. Loved the Animal Feed Walk, Going back to School in the 1800s, didn’t get the cane thank goodness, the re-enactment was fun, lovely Volunteers who are passionate about the Village. Great shops, brought lollies, souvenirs, had damper in the Damper Camp what a pretty place to sit in we had lunch at the Oxboro Inn, food was so reasonable and tasty. The kids all enjoyed the horse and cart ride. Glad we decided to go
What a fantastic place to see our heritage being preserved by knowledgeable and passionate people. It was a chance for our children to experience the life of their great grandparents. We dressed in period costume for a photograph and had the most devious Devonshire tea. The blacksmith was a real hit with my son, he was so willing to share his knowledge with a 10 year old. My daughter loved the carriage ride so much she went on 3 times. The entry price is so reasonable $15.00 for the family… It usually costs me a small fortune to go out for the day. Well done to all involved.
This is a great place to take kids. Loads of room to run around, wonderful old buildings that show how ordinary Australians used to live, horse and cart rides, train rides, good food, picnic areas, an old school house, plenty of free parking and cheap as chips. Its run by volunteers who are friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the place. Definitely worth the drive!
A visit to The Australiana Pioneer Village is a must for anyone of us with children or grandchildren – it is such great value for the very cheap entry fee – just $3 for the little ones and $5 for we adults – you can even get a Family Pass for just $15 that includes 2 children and 2 adults. Once inside The Village you get 27 acres to play in – look through the authentic houses, Church, shops, eateries, walk around the lagoon, see all the animals, crack a whip, have a picnic, see the ladies making butter or home-made lemonade, see a shearing and spinning demonstration and take part in a re-enactment – or pay just a few dollars for an old fashioned horse and cart ride – we find it exceptionally good value and the children love it – it’s easy to spend the whole day there – and they always want to go back again !!!
My kids loved this place. They did a treasure hunt, ride on a horse and carriage, tasted damper, watched butter being made, and were convicts in the re-enactment. Entry for a family was on $15 which is really cheap considering everything that is there. We did have to pay for the horse and carriage ride which was $3 pp. We will definitely be back.
