Welcome to Wagin Historical Village
Opening Hours 10am - 4pm Daily (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, Good Friday and Easter Sunday)
A small group of enthusiasts began building the Village in 1978. Over the years since it has become a 'must visit' attraction for the town of Wagin and is the recipient of Tourism and Volunteer Awards.
The Wagin Historical Village offers visitors the opportunity to step back in time in a village setting that replicates the development of a typical rural Australian community over the last two hundred years.
Nowhere else in Western Australia is there a more comprehensive collection of fully restored and replica rural buildings, machinery and equipment that is open 7 days a week all year round. The village exists today through the efforts of an entirely volunteer organization.
The interiors of the 26 buildings contain original furniture and equipment gathered by our volunteer workforce from many local rural communities. All are displayed in realistic settings with audio commentaries available in many of the major displays.
Not only is the Wagin Historical Village a major tourist attraction, but it also serves to profile the social history of our community with displays featuring local families, pioneers and their lifestyles.
The Village is also a valuable resource for researchers and is frequently visited by school groups seeking to educate and inform our younger generation of the pioneering lifestyle of the early local families.
The Wagin Historical Village also functions as our Tourist Information Centre, offers morning and afternoon teas, pioneer lunches, souvenir and book sales and is entirely staffed and run by volunteers.
