Destination Revisited

Fancy a trip down history? The New South Wales Heritage listed Australiana Pioneer Village will get you there. It is an open-air museum at Wilberforce in Sydney. It was built from 1969 to 1970 and set on 28 acres of beautiful Picnic Grounds. There is an 1810 Village Streetscape with a Church, Shearing Shed, Blacksmith's Shop, Post Office, a Railway Station, Post Office, a Bank and Rose Cottage (the oldest timber dwelling in Australia) and houses that the Hawkesbury Pioneers actually lived in. There are shops within some of the buildings and The Oxboro Inn and The Damper Camp for refreshments. You can also ride the Pioneer Express Train or the Village Express Train, enjoy a Tractor Hay Ride or join the Animal Feed Walk.
