and Wide Open Spaces
At "Oxley Downs" we
offer a hands on historical experience for children and adults alike.
The vast contrast between 1861 and the 21st century is discovered as
children roam throughout the homestead and outbuildings.
The contents of the
buildings are fascinating, from the original 1860's whale bone
toothbrushes, straw mattresses, to the furnishings and fittings of
everyday life and the games that children played before the introduction
of electricity. Our aim is to welcome visitors into our home and
help them understand how our forebears lived.
"Oxley Downs" is unique.
