Events at Pioneer Village Museum


Guided bushwalk, September 9th 2023 at 11am

Our bushwalking track is very popular with visitors, and on Saturday 9th September an accomplished horticulturist has kindly offered to guide visitors through this beautiful walk!

Starting at 11am, the walk will be relaxed and is expected to last approximately 90 minutes. A special $5 entry fee will apply for those attending the bushwalk only. For entry into the museum, normal entry fees apply.

If you would like to join us, come along on the day!
