5 star ratingA Wonderful Step Back in Time We had a wonderful day at the Australiana Pioneer Villlage today. The volunteers that run the place were friendly, knowledgable and very generous with their time. We had 4 children with us, and they had a fab time, grinding flour, churning butter, writing with old-fashioned pens, riding on the hay -wagon, sitting in the stocks, getting convict ID cards. We had a delicious lunch at Oxboro Inn was delicious! Super cottages, shops, and school with a very in formative ‘Headmaster’. Well wort visiting!!
