Real Reviews

Genuine reviews from real people who have recently visited The Village.

We love coming out to the Pioneer Village and taking a break from technology. Our kids have a great time exploring, the volunteers are always engaging and make it so much fun for everyone.There is plenty of parking available, you can pack a picnic or BBQ lunch and use the picnic tables and free bbqs Or you can purchase lunch and snacks on site, we had the fresh damper with butter and golden syrup and a delicious home made pea and ham soup with a fresh buttered roll for dipping.Entry is super cheap and there's loads of free activities to enjoy. The kids played checkers, quoits and rode on the penny farthing bicycles and learnt how to crack a whip. You can also take a ride on the mini train or go on a tractor ride for a small fee. Highly recommend a day at the village for the whole family

The village is a good historic site with a few fun activities for kids and adults. The cafe near the entrance is not very good, I was waiting for my food for 1hr and the food is not good quality. If you're going there, take some food with you or cook BBQ there. The rides on the train and tractor wagon were good!

The kids and I loved it. The volunteers that run the place are extremely friendly and helpful. It's was an awesome experience. The only regret I have is not taking the kids earlier as the shows start at 10.30 and the last one is at 2.30pm. On Sundays the gates close at 4.00pm. But would definitely go back and recommend my friends.
