Laidley Pioneer Village and Museum is the oldest historical village in Queensland. Established in 1972, the village is a picture of rural life in Queensland from the early 1800's.

From the tractor shed to the old butcher shop, from the school house to the slab hut, the restored buildings and contents are a great visual reminder of days gone by. Lots of hands on activities for the kids. All this plus the Blacksmith demonstrations, vintage machinery and don’t miss the new wagon and sulky display.
