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!

The Festival will feature displays and demonstrations from all aspects of Pioneering life- including arts, crafts, music, vintage machinery and age old crafts such as Silversmithing, Tinsmithing and Blacksmithing. The kids will love to see the old steam engines and stationary engines working and the heavy horses are always a favourite too.

There will also be an extensive range of wood products from the Toowoomba Woodworkers on display. Local spinners and weavers will talk about wool usage in textiles and spin wool directly off the sheep’s back.

Come and see how the Australian Pioneers survived in bygone years and learn heritage skills. Get back to basics and away from the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy the atmosphere of the Village set in Pioneering days. Visit the Fashion Shop or the Historic National Bank - be careful you might be held up by Ned Kelly !
