Take a step back in time to find out about life in the past. Experience doing the washing in a tub with a washboard. Play hopscotch, hoops, tug-of-war, skipping, croquet and more. Challenge your children to a sack race or help them create their own collage. Go back to school with our old-time teacher. Make butter with our kitchen maid and watch the blacksmiths hammering red hot metal.
On several Sundays during the year, Ipswich Historical Society invites speakers to make presentations. These are usually on the fourth Sunday in the month when there is no other event scheduled. There is usually an historical theme to the presentations that are held in the main building at Cooneana Heritage Centre.
Take photos of the Blacksmiths working their forges in the dark; listen to members of the Historical Motorcycle Club and join their workshop; attend the Introduction to Felting Workshop with the Spinners, Weavers, Fibre Artisans of Ipswich and attend a meeting of the Ipswich Mini Crafters. Best of all take some flaming good photos!
