Definitely worth a stop and look at the Pioneer Village, see how things were done in yester year and appreciate our ancestors and the struggles they faced ..

An easy way to fill in a couple of hours - just the thought of the time, effort and organisation to develop what is a pretty amazing collection gives pause for thought. Many of the buildings were totally disassembled, transported to this site and then reassembled for display. There are thousands of individual items in the various buildings adding to... More

This village surprised us as we found much more than expected. There is so much to see, being cared for by a small team of volunteers. Well worth a stop

The whole place is well set up, lots... More

The Pioneer Village holds a wonderful collection of historical buildings from the local Inverell area. My Great Grand parents were married at The Grove building when it was situated along the Bundarra Road, in the mid 1800's, out from Tingha in New South Wales. The building was moved to the current position in the village. All exhibits are so well... More

The Inverell Pioneer village is a perfect weekend trip to escape into the past & relate to yesteryear... the buildings surround a unique glimpse into a bygone era... The grounds are superbly manicured with a serene pond in the middle of the village... This Village is also a perfect place to hold weddings or other family functions... also it's a... More

Wow - so much history in one place. Allow yourself a good couple of hours to get through this awesome flashback in time! It really is a credit to everyone who has put Pioneer Village on the map! Enjoy a well earned ice-cream at the end of your tour :-)

We were given a book to describe and identify the individual huts and stories of older generations and how lived and worked.
