Real Reviews

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

We went here on a school excursion 30 to 40 yrs ago as a primary school year 6 student so the history of this place goes back a long long way. This place is amazing it's like Pioneer Australia frozen in time...Must see when coming to the Hawkesbury area.. I remember they had sheep shearing demonstration..I wonder what has changed now !!
