About The Friends of The Australiana Pioneer Village

The Australiana Pioneer Village is a NSW Heritage Listed Open Air Museum
at Wilberforce - it is set in 28 acres of beautiful picnic grounds. The
Friends Of The Australiana Pioneer Village Inc was originally formed in
1987 and The Village is run entirely by Volunteers - we will re-open to
the Public after fires, floods and Covid 19 on Sunday 9th January, 2022.

We have a wonderful collection of original Hawkesbury buildings that
were likely to be demolished or were being neglected - they were moved
to the site in the late 1960s/early 1970s - these include a Bank,
Shearing Shed, Church, Stables, Damper Camp, Post Office etc . . .

The Friends of The APV and the General Public fought tirelessly for 10
years to save The Village from being sold off - we are extremely
passionate and put our hearts and souls into showcasing our Hawkesbury
Pioneers - the way they lived, worked and worshiped - The Village is a
major draw card for families to enjoy a day out, have a picnic, ride a
mini train, have a tractor hay ride, feed animals or enjoy the use of
free BBQs, stroll The Village and our shops.
