Howick Historical Village

Step back in time and experience the past

Walk around our 7 acre site, and explore gardens and buildings in a Fencible settlement during the 1840 to 1880 period. There are over thirty original colonial buildings collected on site, including schools, a church, forge and general store.

Chat to the costumed staff in this living museum, or take a break to savour the home-style food and real coffee in the cafe. Enjoy a peaceful day in beautiful surroundings, coming face to face with the past.

The museum, cafe and shop are open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm, all year round. Closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day,  New Year’s Day, Good Friday and Anzac Day.
