Gatton Star - - FRONT PAGE -

AN IN­TER­AC­TIVE win­dow to the re­gion’s past was opened dur­ing the Lai­d­ley Her­itage Week­end.

Horses and carts roamed the area, black­smiths worked hard, agri­cul­tural equip­ment was in ac­tion and old machin­ery put­tered away.

Sheep shear­ing, cow milk­ing and tra­di­tional craft demon­stra­tions were also on dis­play, as crowds en­joyed a unique taste of days gone by.

The Lai­d­ley Her­itage Week­end was held at the Lai­d­ley Pioneer Vil­lage and Mu­seum, as well as Das Neu­mann Haus.

There was plenty to see and do, with a large crowd flow­ing through both lo­ca­tions over Satur­day and Sun­day.

Among them was Syd­ney fam­ily Elise and Gavin Da­ley with their kids Ethan and Kai. The fam­ily is on a trip around Aus­tralia and was lucky enough to en­joy the event while camp­ing nearby.

“It’s a step back in time which is great and to ap­pre­ci­ate where we’ve come from,” Mr Da­ley said.
