“A Walk Back In time”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

This Pioneer Village was an absolute delight. Run by dedicated volunteers it is a credit to them and the district. A walk back in time with wonderful memories. We were fortunate enough to see the Light Horsemen practise for their show. Take the time and stop and have a look at the Darling Downs history!

“Highfields Pioneer Village”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

This is a combination of static and working heritage museum. It is very cheap entertainment for a family or individual and there is no time limit other than closing time. It particularly traces Australia's farming and transport heritage from early European settlement days. You can also enjoy snacks of damper, tea and sandwiches made on the premises. It incorporates the Southern Cross Museum which is a purpose built shed tracing the history of this irrigation company. Each year on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday of Easter a special Heritage Festival is held.

“Easter 2012 Visit”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Easter is a major 4 day event for this attraction. Loaded with early Australia pioneer exhibits and demonstrations. Open 1000-1600 dailyb over the break. Also open daily. The major event was well worth thge visit and I would recommend it, Be prepared to spend the entire day on site and you will definately not be bored. Food on site at reasonable cost. Admission reasonable and worth the cost. A whole lot of early Australia on display.
