Back in time Family Fun Days
First Family Fun Day for 2023 - Sunday 12 March 9am-2pm
Are you strong enough to shovel coal as our miners used to do?
Ride the trackless train for free to see all the displays outside. Wave to your friends.
Everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy playing together, doing the washing in a tub, making craft items to take home and watching the blacksmiths working on their forges.
Check out the classic motorcycles. Learn to trace your family history with the Genies (Ipswich Genealogical Society). See how knives are made with the Queensland Metal Artisans Collective. Take a free ride on a heritage bus.
Stay for lunch and purchase a sausage and a drink.
This is our first Family Fun Day outside of school holidays so if you have missed out before because you go away at Easter, come along on Sunday 12 March.
Adults $7.50 Children 4-12 years $5.00 Under 4 years free. Families of up to two adults and four children $25.00.
Tickets at the gate. Parking available.
We acknowledge the donations received from Ipswich City Council, Lance McCallum MP for Bundamba, Charis Mullen MP for Jordan,
Jennifer Howard MP for Ipswich and Jim Madden MP for West Ipswich. Thank you all for your kind support.

What a day this was!
The Mini Crafters exhibit of an old Queenslander in the museum was fantastic and all the other activities were well patronized.
