Timbertown is located in Wauchope, near Port Macquarie on NSW mid north coast. It is approximately 5 hours north of Sydney and is set amongst 87 acres of natural forest.
Enjoy a journey back in time and experience village life as it was in the 1880s. Considered by many to be one of Australia's finest Heritage Parks, Timbertown has been visited by more than 2 million people since its opening in 1976.
You won't be disappointed as there are so many interesting things to see and do – try your hand at whip cracking (ouch), watch a bullock show, take a ride on the miniature steam railway, feed farm animals including alpacas, sheep, ducks, chickens, pigs and many more. Watch milking demonstrations, cross cut sawing or take a forest tour on a horse drawn wagon.
Facilities include Maul and Wedge License Restaurant and Function Centre, Wallaces Store, which serves ice cream, sweets and souvenirs, Vickers Fudge Factory and Timbertown Winery as well as Heritage Playground.
Timbertown also offers school education packages where children are given a simple costume to help them relate to the 1890s way of life. They get to practice writing in the school house and will experience 6 sites in the timber getters village.
