Fun on the dairy farm
Buckingham House, nestled in the backstreets of Wanneroo, has long been a site of interest due to its rich heritage as a former graziers house in 1890.

Paying homage to its original owners, John and Amelia Buckingham, and their seven children, who kept their cattle well watered from Lake Joondalup, a Day at the Dairy provides a great opportunity to take the kids along to this open house and find out a bit more about it's past occupants and about all things cows related.

What's On

On Sunday 16th November, head on over to Buckingham House between 1pm and 4pm for a fun filled day with the family. Enjoy playing games from yesteryear, make the Australian favourite damper bread in addition to some great crafts in the form of making your own Christmas card or a cow themed puppet.
