The Village plays host to schools from all over Queensland annually. A visit to the Village focuses on changes to our lifestyle, transport, communication since early settlement.
The Village is made up of 70 buildings, housing some 110,000 items and set on 12 acres. There is a Tearoom and Café on site for light refreshments.
The price per student is $10.00. This price includes entry and GST. One adult to every five students is admitted free of charge. Beyond that ratio each adult pays the student price of $10.00. A train ride is included in this price. Our administration will send an invoice out to your school after the visit. All booking inquiries can be directed to our Administration on (07) 5495 4581. We are happy to help with any further questions or concerns you may have.
School visits are conducted on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays subject to demonstrator availability.
Teachers could use this for follow-up re-enforcement later in the classroom. These are available online or email request.
While the Historical Society and its Volunteers take all possible care, the students are the responsibility of the schools. They must be supervised at all times to ensure their safety and the safety of other patrons at the Village. All persons must comply with our Workplace Health & Safety Policy. Copies are displayed at various points around the Village. Our Village is staffed by a wonderful group of Volunteers so some changes may occur on the day. All activities are subject to change without
