Step back in time: NSW's Timbertown

17:30 AEST Sat Mar 24 2012
Timbertown in Wauchope in mid-northern New South Wales, is an authentic heritage village, recreated as a living slice of life in Australia in the 1800s. It's all about the struggles and achievements of our pioneers.

Timbertown is set in 35 hectares of natural forest and has been running since 1976. It's attracted more than 2 million visitors. A visit there is a history lesson with loads of fun.

The horse and carriage still runs, the steam train is still on the tracks, timber is sawn and the bullock team hauls heavy loads. The air is full of the aromas of steam engines, freshly sawn timber and home-style cooked meals.
