Australiana Pioneer Village

Home > Sydney > Escape the City | Historic Houses | Fun Things To Do
Published February 19th 2011
After a long and tiring debate the Australiana Pioneer Village has been re-opened.

This is great news for all of you history lovers! See one of Australia's last remaining original pioneer towns. Take in the sights, have a picnic and best of all get out of the house for the day.

Whether it be educating the children, taking a trip back to "the good old days" or just trying something new; I recommend checking out this little village.

View a world before technology, lose yourself in time, and before you know it, it will be time to leave.

Not convinced?

Well the Australiana Pioneer Village may be shut down any day - don't miss your chance to view our heritage - you and your family are sure to have a great day out.

Who knows - you may find something interesting.

Vanessa, I went to the reopening of APV, what a great day, a step back in time.

Thankyou for the information. I called the Australiana Pioneer Village to get some more details. Spoke to a wonderfully charming Lesley. She explained that they have BBQ's but they are under a little of disrepair. You can get lunch at the Damper Camp for $10. Devenshire Teas are available in the afternoon. There is an entry fee not free as indicated but the minmal cost is worth it to keep this wonderful place open all run by community volunteers. $5 adults, $3 children and $15 family. Can't wait to visit for my birthday!!

Went here yesterday and really enjoyed it...Horse buggy rides for $2 p/p, 50c for Bag of horse food, pony rides, lolly shop, cheap food and drink. A very relaxing place, lots for the kids to do as well as a few small shops for the adults to poke around in. Very charming and well worth a visit.
