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.
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.

Learn how

the townsfolk lived, where they went to church and school, what they brought from the stores and about the paddle-steamers that visited regularly, and how their grit and determination enabled them to survive in this harsh landscape. The Village rekindles memories of days gone by and of the hard-working pioneers who struggled to tame this inhospitable land.

Learn the stories

of the early settlers and their families, evident in more than 45 buildings and exhibits within The Village. Stroll down memory lane and experience their lifestyles. Visit the bakery, bank, blacksmith, printing office, motor garage and even the dentist – if you dare!

Learn how our buildings

were relocated or built on site with many replicating original constructions within the district. Exhibits are regularly maintained and in some cases additions have been made to meet modern safety requirements.

Plan to spend the day

and take your time appreciating the thousands of genuine antiques, Australian collectibles, vintage machinery, vehicles and more.
