“Fantastic for anyone of any age!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I was lucky enough to visit Australiana Pioneer Village. Amazing place, great price, and even better volunteers! Check out the candy store, and in the back rooms there are crafts and antiques you can buy for great prices.

It was fantastic to read about all of the history for each of the buildings, being able to get in and touch nearly everything. Make sure you stop by the bank and talk to the old teller there. He was the highlight of our visit! It is only open one day a week but worth changing your plans to visit!

“A wonderful day out, time and again”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Don't miss out on this delightful trip through history, with something new to see each time. From sheep-shearing shows to unicycle rides, reptile exhibitions to blacksmith demonstrations, there's always something for everyone to enjoy (not to mention the delicious and very reasonably priced cream teas and damper). We have visited a couple of times now and always keep an eye out for future events at this fantastic place. Not to be missed!

“What a great fun way to view history”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

You can't complain about the $5 entry price. Extremely good value for money. The Pioneer Village is set up in such a way that kids can have a great time learning about what has gone before them. There's a treasure hunt ($1) which is really good fun. The Damper is a must try too. All in all a great day out with lots of fun for everyone. Great Sunday out exploring with the family.

“Step Back in Time”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Great day out seeing how the early settlers lived and worked you must try the Damper and Cocky's Joy(golden syrup). Entertainment for all especially the kids. Well worth the $5.00 entry fee..
