Fun days at Woodlands

Number 8 Network shares some photo highlights from the Pioneer Fundays held at Woodlands Estate last week. 

The free family fun, during the school holidays, are an extravaganza of 19th Century delights and goings-on – featuring pony rides, vintage machinery, old fashioned games, and skills including butter churning.  It was a fabulous three days, thank you all at Woodlands!


Victorian Amusements’ David Riddell keeps an eye on the quoits score while Woodlands looks utterly grand:
