Visited with family and a 5 year old who was very interested in the displays. The blacksmith was great and interacted well with his audience. Tractor ride, steam train ride, mini train,carriage ride and paddle boats were all included in cost. Staff on site were informative and lovely. Lady at front desk needs more skills in customer service, did start... More

Great value and an excellent day out for families. Go back in time to the 1880s and experience life back in the old days. Train rides, horse and cart rides, a working blacksmith, paddleboats and more. The cafe provided a delicious meal as well. Highly recommended.

What a wonderful place. We spent the entire day here with young grandchildren. They loved it immensely. So many things to see and do. At only $25 for adults and cheaper for families it's excellent value. All rides and attractions are covered. The train ride was a favourite. Horse-drawn carriage, paddle boats and so much more. Food is also available.... More

Having grown up in wauchope, timbertown was always a vibrant and fun place to visit. Visited today for the first time in 10+ years, it was a let down. Overpriced for what it is. The bullocks weren't running, nor was the miniature train for the kids. I think having more staff walking around the park would make the atmosphere more... More

I can a Appreciate that Timbertown in its prime might of been amazing but i think its time is up. Its expensive and although all things inside are free its not much of a draw card . ( sounds so much better on paper) The staff are friendly and always happy to have a chat. If more staff roamed about... More
