Wonderful place to visit extremely informative even have a ride in an old vintage car or horse and buggy or if you pay more a ride on a paddle steamer. Also have a light show which unfortunately we missed.

A really good place to visit if you are interested in Australian history. This settlement/museum is laid out as an old town and contains period shops, a paddle steamer and interesting displays

So any things to see and so many opportunities for a great time. Kids loved the lollipops, school, dressing up and generally walking around. The sound and light show at night is outstanding. Great show and taught history painlessly.
