Fun and games at Buckingham House
For a fun day out the whole family can enjoy, come along to Kidsfest at Buckingham House, on Sunday 3rd November, 2013, between 1pm and 4pm. Buckingham House, located on Neville Drive in Wanneroo, is a beautiful heritage listed property built around 1880, it's only open to the public a couple to times a year, so don't miss this opportunity.
This fantastic, free, community event is proudly brought to you by The City of Wanneroo. Visitors can venture back in time to the pioneering era and get a glimpse of what 19th century life was like.
The whole family can enjoy an interesting and exciting afternoon, experiencing hands-on heritage activities. See what life was like in the 'olden days', play old fashioned games, take part in the children's craft activities, see the farm animals, the Mens Shed woodworking activities, damper making demonstrations and much more.
Originally home to John and Emily Buckingham and their seven children, Buckingham House is now a lovingly restored, four bedroom cottage. Since then the property has been owned or rented by several families and some of the land has been used for market gardening or farming and the property has even been run as a dairy farm. The rural house and farm property is popular with locals and a lovely tourist attraction.
So gather the family and head over to Buckingham House for a fun day out at this popular heritage property. See what life was like in days before electricity and all the other mod cons, a time when life moved at a slower pace but also involved a lot of hard work.
