If you like Trams, Trains, and nostalgia, this is worth a look. Something for all the family here, rides, food, Icecreams.
Prices are reasonable, family passes available. Open most days, Trams run on holidays and weekends, steam trains are not always running, check the their website. Get a group together and dress for the 1920s.

Lots to do here and has many interesting attractions. The steam train was very good.

Enjoyed the many older houses that are all well laid out as they would have looked 100+ years ago.

Entry cost for 2 Seniors, another Adult, and 2 children was $55.00. This included an extra $20 for the day which was a Steam Train running day. On the displayed admission price notice we should have been charged $42.50.

A theatrical operation which provides teas/coffee and choice of food was excellent - this attracts an extra charge but was worth it.

On the day we visited a number of the attractions were not operating. Visitor numbers were fairly sparse.

Lots of olde world charm in this place with the usual historic buildings and vehicles - school house, bakery, printery, theatres, post office and telephone exchange. Don't miss the Hall of Flame with its extensive display of fire appliances, including one for the children with dress-up to match. Rides include a steam train, rail car, trams and buses. Other displays feature photography, agriculture, friendly societies, aircraft and model railway. Something for everyone of all ages!! Not totally wheel-chair friendly in all areas.

We took the grandkids here. They loved it all. They were able to try things out and ride the mini fire engine complete with kids fire outfits. The steam train was running which was a highlight. Also the old movie theatre was operating. The school had a teacher and children role playing in period costume. Definitely worth a visit. Take your lunch and have a picnic.

Really enjoyed it here, there was so much to see and do. Would definitely recommend it to families, however a lot of it is outdoors, so not ideal for a rainy day!
