The major attraction near Wauchope is the Timbertown Pioneer Village, which has literally dozens of houses recreating an old timber town of the 1880s. The early settlers and timber getters made Wauchope their home in this period. The town thrived for many years as a timber town and a recreation of Wauchope in the early days is now a historical theme park.

We had quite a good time in Timbertown and tasted the excitement of Australian life as it was 100 years ago. We met memorable characters in the school when we had to take a class the old fashion style.
