I first visited the pioneerSettlement the year it opened, then again about 8 years ago. Was very impressed with it each time, but today's visit was even better. Very authentic and informative exhibitions, helpful staff, and a delicious Devonshire Tea. My friend was visiting for the first time and was very impressed. Think all Australians should visit to see how tough the conditions were for our country pioneers.

What a lovely place to visit. There are lots of activities through the day, better if you go in the morning around 9.30 or you could miss some.
We booked in for the 3 in 1 tours, including the River boat and the evening Laser light show. Both were excellent.
The part 3 is the exploring of the settlement village. There is lots to see so give yourself plenty of time. We actually took two days to get around everything.

Went with friends to this lovely little village of yesteryear. We bought the 3 activity pass. What a wonderful day exploring the park. Went for a horse ride, a ride in a dodge car and meandered the exhibits. Dressed up in period style and had our photos taken and then spent a leisurely hour on the paddle boat Pyap. Topped the day off with the Heartbeat of the Murray light show. A fabulous day! Bonus is admission price is for 2 days.
