Timbertown, Wauchope, NSW
Timbertown Heritage Railway, Wauchope, NSW

Timbertown is a popular attraction, depicting the colonial era of a sawmiller's village in northern New South Wales. It is located on 39 hectares (87 acres) of coastal blackbutt (Eucalyptus pilularis) forest on the Oxley Highway at Wauchope in Australia.[1] Timbertown is an interactive museum which has enjoyed periodic success as a family-friendly tourist attraction.

John Abi-Saab presided over the early implementation of the Timbertown Tourist Project. Timbertown was officially opened by the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Arthur Roden Cutler in 1976. Currently it operates as a themed entertainment/retail precinct.

Attractions[edit]

The key attractions of Timbertown are the 2 ft (610 mm) narrow gauge[2] Timbertown Heritage Railway, with a steam train and a short circuit track within and around the village, and the Bullock team demonstrations.

There are also several businesses operating including a blacksmith, timber furniture, leather worker and Wallaces Store with souvenirs and confectionery.

The Maul and Wedge serves meals daily and is available for hire for private functions.

Local artisans offer both local woodwork, artwork and craft items.

There are some interactive displays throughout the day possibly featuring:

  • Bullock team demonstrations
  • Cross cut saw demonstrations
  • Horse and carriage rides
  • Steam train rides
  • Miniature railway rides
  • Blacksmithing demonstrations

In 2008 Timbertown won the Mid North Coast Tourism Award for Business Excellence.[3]
