Great exhibits maintained by enthusiasts. Trains, Trams, telecommunications, post office, old shop, and of course the buildings. They hold a night marked with entertainment and food trucks on the evening of the first Saturday of every month. Well worth a visit.

For a dollar entry on the heritage week, how could it not be worth while, the barber was the highlight plus the ride in trams and trains.

A beautiful heritage park that desperately is in need of vibrancy and lift. A first glimpse into the park is when one enters the main area whereby we buy tickets. Absolutely disappointing! The staff are dressed in their ‘normal’ everyday clothes, and there’s coffee machine...More

A very cool historical reconstructed town with lots of different places of interest. We spent hours there exploring. There weren't very many people there which seems a shame but also meant we could meander without crowds. Different clubs own different parts of Ferrymead so each...More
