We can offer you a day among the gum trees at the Australia Day event at The Gatton & District Historical Village with activities to entertain you, along with slapping together some great Aussie tucker.

It all starts at 9am with displays, music, entertainment for the kids and demonstrations. Local musicians will entertain you. Check out the Gatton Lapidary Club - they have a brilliant range of local rocks and fossils, plus jewellery hand made by club members. The Lockyer Valley Community Activities Shed will have a range of hand-crafted wooden items for sale.

The Light Horse Troop will have several displays and horses. There will be stationary engines running, blacksmithing demonstrations plus the Lockyer Antique Motor Association with a great display of vintage cars - they will even take you for a short trip if you would like to relive by-gone days.

Food and drinks are available for purchase with an Aussie BBQ lunch on offer plus of course morning tea delights including scones, lamingtons, damper as well as tea and coffee.

The kids are taken care of with lots to keep them busy.

Come for a drive - you will find us in Freemans Road, Gatton, off the road to Mt Sylvia, just past the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre and Skate Park.
