  • This village is so perfectly set. The buildings and gardens are a wonderful journey let alone all other historical tools and artefacts inside. We loved the demonstrations and one day was simply not...

  • Wow, what a lot to see. We spend over 4 hours looking around. There are many different well presented displays (many in old reconstructed buildings) including cars, tractors, cameras, clothing...

  • Must see! Our favourite museum in Australia so far. We spent over 3 hours here. It wasn't crowded because the tour buses don't come on Tuesdays. The staff were excellent! Extra friendly and accommodating. The tea room was very cute to sit in. There are plenty of picnic tables so I'd recommend bringing your own or having a snack in the tea room. Entry fee is CHEAP and 100% worth it (I don't know why other reviewers twisted about the price!) Yes it does smell old. Because it's full of old things. It's very much the Australian version of Beamish in England. We'd recommend this to anyone.
  • This has to be our favourite dog friendly activity so far on our lap of Australia! We loved the variety, informative signs and beautiful displays. Something for everyone! Dogs we’ve allowed throughout the grounds and inside each individual building so we didn’t miss out on anything which is quite rare when travelling with dogs.
