Majura Valley Bush Festival

Join our journey of the historic Majura Valley as we venture along the path of the 1800s when the first post office and schoolhouse/church were built. Enjoy displays, demos and stories about the families who lived and worked their farms from days past to the Majura Valley of today. Bring a rug & picnic lunch.

We will have a wonderful display of the original Vintage horse drawn carriages used in the Valley in years past, as well as whip cracking displays, wood chopping, farrier displays, farm animal petting for young children with Noah’s Ark, merry-go-round rides, hay rides, aboriginal walks and talks presented by Wally and Karen Bell. There will be walking tours along historic trails leading to the original Post Office and Church/Community Hall, which are still standing in the Valley.
