Pioneer Settlement

Where history comes alive.

Interested in days gone by? Pack your camera and set aside a day to explore the unique Pioneer Settlement, where the good old days come to life right in front of your eyes.

Walking down the main street, it’s easy to picture yourself in a rural settlement more than 100 years ago, with immaculately preserved and restored buildings and memorabilia as the perfect backdrop. Luckily for us, hidden in these 19th century buildings are the essential ingredients for today’s indulgences, such as coffee, cakes and ice cream. Immerse yourself fully in 19th century pioneer life.

Virtual reality is now here at the touch of a button. Just like a scene from a movie set, real life images appear right in front of your eyes at the push of a button, with state of the art technology.

Make sure you take time to stroll on the wharf and check out the PS Gem. The Gem is one of the most impressive passenger river paddle streamers you will ever see! After all that exploring and travelling back in time, why not relax and watch the world go by at the newly refurbished Dumosa Hall? Here, Friends of the Pioneer Settlement will cater for your every need, as you recharge your batteries for the next leg of your history adventure.

As the day turns into night, the action does not stop; make your way down to the banks of the Marraboor River where you will experience a display you will never forget: the Heartbeat of the Murray Laser Show.
