This weekend showcases what the pioneers of the 19th century in the area did to work, rest and play. Each day will be filled with live demonstrations including spinners, sheep shearing, forgery, butter churning and a bullock team!
From 10am until 4pm, you will enjoy traditional music, games and exhibitions set on over an acre of bushland in amongst the Pioneer Village Museum. The traditional homestead will welcome you as history really comes alive.
Come and see the traditional skills that our volunteers continue to practice, such as lead light creations, pottery and leather work. You can see olden-day machines restored to working order and even have a go at using a traditional saw. It wasn’t an easy life for the Pioneers – come and appreciate their efforts by experiencing their lives for a day.
The Lions Club will be providing a BBQ sizzle to sustain you through the day.
PIONEER DAYS will be educational, entertaining and enjoyable! Dress up in traditional pioneer costumes and get involved in the lifestyles of the Pioneers of the 1800s.
