The village comes alive on Sundays when their volunteers dressed in period clothes demonstrate old time crafts. See the blacksmith make a horseshoe, treadle the 100 year old wood lathe and help make your own souvenir wooden goblet. Come and turn the handles on the corn shelling machine or join the Rope Maker and make a souvenir piece of rope on a 100 year old machine for free.

Three new displays opened on Australia Day 2018, a Fire Station, a Cobblers Shop and a Barbers Shop. With over 3 acres of displays, allow at least two hours to view, more on Sundays when the demonstrations are live.
