So much to see and do

Step back in time: to an era before TV, air conditioners and computers, when bread was baked at home in a wood-fuelled oven, milk came directly from cows to the table and when horses pulled ploughs to cultivate the land.

The Loxton historical Village tells the stories of the region's early settlers and their families, displayed in over 45 recreated buildings and exhibits on the banks of the mighty Murray River. All buildings and displays have been relocated or built on site, with most replicating original constructions from Loxton's pioneering years.

Spend the day and explore thousands of historical items, vintage machinery, vehicles and more...

See how pioneers of the region transformed dry Mallee plains into lush citrus orchards and how farmers combated floods, drought, heat, rabbit plagues and devastating winds to produce some of the best cereal grain crops in the country.

Experience the settler's lives, their churches, schools, homes and general stores.

Plan to spend the day leisurely taking your time to explore thousands of historical house hold items, vintage machinery, vehicles plus much more. Exhibits are brought to life during 'Alive Days

    Mission Statement;

 The purpose of the Loxton Historical Village is to acquire, restore, preserve and display  items of local historical significance to the Loxton, Riverland and Mallee District of South  Australia from the period 1870-1950 inclusive.
