    ** australiana pioneer village - wednesday, 3rd july**

    As I am on holidays for a couple weeks I am wanting to get out through the day for a photography fix.

    I am intending to go and visit the Australiana Pioneer Village at Wilberforce this coming Wednesday, 3rd July. It is only open during the school holidays for a couple of days each week of the holidays. Just putting it out there if any one wants to join me. I intend to get there about 10:30am. Please PM or post here if you are interested.

    Here is the website for the Village:

    Whilst I am out there I might also visit an historic church at Ebenezer.

    Visit my 52/2011 My photos on Flickr. On Model Mayhem now (fortunately not as a model) My new blogsite!

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself.

    I knew it had been around for many years. I can't ever recall going there.
    I believe that they have refurbished it in the last few years. I am hoping it won't be too crowded.

    Not that it's particularly important. I remember going there as a kid, probably early or mid '70s. Then we went to the butterfly place out that way!

    mechawombat - It is open Tuesday and Wednesday next week. I had a lovely time browsing through all of the buildings. My niftyfifty got a good workout.

    I passed the Butterfly Farm just before reaching the Pioneer Village. I believe it is now mainly a Go-Kart track and a small museum with some mounted displays of butterflies.

    I think it closed down for a while Leanne then it was refurbished a few years a go and is now run by volunteers.

    I had been closed down for quite a while - even before Old Sydney Town closed down. It reopened about 2 years ago.
