Very confusing juxtaposition of Dutch oddity meets The Shining. Atrociously sad collection of a man's life spent compiling cultural irrelevancies in the form of a Dutch "model village", aka weird little dolls houses with turgid model train sets interspersed amongst the wreckage.

A bit of family fun. Walk thru gift shop and find a mini Dutch Village (and the bonus is, no charge) After checking out the exhibition, walk next door and try the coffee and pancakes. You will not be disappointed

Shows daily showing how clogs are made. Wonderful miniature Dutch city in the back. Full with water channels, people, cars. So cute. Enjoyed this.

Was pleasantly surprised to find something free. Very well maintained miniature village. A few water dragons had decided to put on a show reminding me of a 60s SciFi movie set. Staff are lovely and we quite happily added to the donation box.

Worth a look, mini trains and villages, displays on making clogs. There is also accommodation next door, if your in Coffs take a look it's free so you have nothing to lose :)

Not a lot to do here. Kids loved the train out back, lots of lizards running around. Unfortunately missed the clog maker.

We were curious about this place. We walked into the gift shop & out the back through the little Dutch village. Kids would love it, but not our cup of tea. The clogs were nice to look at.

Hi sorry I cant help but I know the Clog Barn runs the facility. Give the Clog Barn a call or email them - I know this cause they were taking bookings when we visited.
