  • With what little cash they get it's great BUT REALITY IS It could be so great. There is a massive Heritage in Ipswich. The Welsh Miners came. Names everywhere reflect the past in the people of today.....  more »
  • Lots of love and attention to detail from several volunteer groups that make up this organisation. Spinners and Weavers and the Genealogical Society are bothed housed in vintage historical cottages...  more »
  • My 5 year old son loved everything, particularly "Sam's little house" which he still thinks is hilarious and wants to go back again. Arvo was a fantastic tour guide. Just note that some websites list the entry as "donation only" however there is a $5 fee per adult which is well worth the money.
  • Had a school excursion of 40+ grade one's attend. The volunteers couldn't have been more accommodating and the kids had the best time. 10/10
