From the 1850s pioneer cottages, to Towaninnie Homestead to the Mallee Township, you can wander at leisure in a bygone world experiencing real Australian history at Pioneer Settlement.

Complimentary vintage car or horse and carriage rides are an ideal way to see the sights, passing Riversdale and Keats Cottages and the Lower Murray Inn with its welcoming atmosphere to Towaninnie Homestead; a typical 1880's Mallee homestead with Mallee root fences, mud-brick kitchen and half cellar.

With arms full of old fashioned lollies from the General Store, and wanted posters from The Echo Print Shop, watch the blacksmith hard at work, wander the Golden Harvest Trail, or marvel at the array of machinery in the industrial area. Or stop for a delicious Devonshire Tea at The Paragon Café.

Cruise aboard the paddle-steamer PS Pyap; dressing up in costume for a family photograph. End your day with the new laser, fire and water spectacular - Heartbeat of the Murray; First Prize winner in the International Laser Design Association multi-media show category.

There is so much to see and do you will be grateful that the entrance ticket has a complimentary second day’s entry included.
