This is amazing !

This was bigger then expected! When you enter you feel like this is it, but then you hop on the train and there’s so much more. I love how they recreated this, it’s awesome ! I highly recommend this if you love the learn about history !

In days of old

A fabulous step back in time. The train trip was a real treat and the hologram theatre is just the cutest. The hospital is plain scary but makes you realise how far we've advanced in medical procedures, thankfully. I had picked up a souvenir book on Shantytown I had found at a garage sale and it had heaps of information about most of the buildings. I was pleased I had bought it. Only one downside was the old time photo was dbl booked and even though we arrived early, the person running it had decided to take a family over us. I was really disappointed.

Steeped in fantastic local History!

What a special place! The history of the local area has been captured and preserved for everyone to appreciate. We would highly recommend a visit to Shantytown to fully appreciate what our forebears endured. Thankyou for making our day 😀
