The 3 Day Highfields Pioneer Village Easter Vintage Festival is running on Easter Saturday, Sunday and Monday 31st March, 1st and 2nd April 2018. The theme of the festival is ˜Following Footsteps”. Come and experience rural life in the Australian Pioneer days! Milk a cow, learn how to crack a whip or be a blacksmith.

Animal Nursery

Enjoy Billy tea and damper made on authentic camp ovens. Don’t miss the spectacular Grand Parade and the baby animals nursery. There will be live music and great food. You might even encounter the infamous bush ranger Ned Kelly!

Whether you love history, you’re a vintage machinery buff or you are just looking for great entertainment, you will have a wonderful time at the Easter Vintage Festival. It is an affordable, entertaining weekend for all ages. Past visitors have come for a day and returned for all three!
