The Howick Historical Village is an authentic replica of a Fencible settlement during the 1840 to 1880 period.
The Howick Historical Village is set out on a 7 acre site, and you can explore the gardens and 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. Or bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a peaceful day in the beautiful surroundings, coming face to face with the past.
On the third Sunday of each month (excluding December) the whole Howick Historical Village comes to Life with costumed Villagers going about their daily duties and activities. See out Blacksmiths, Bodger and Carpenter at work, butter making, rope making, cooking over open fires in winter and our ever popular Horse and Cart rides are back. There are plenty of old-fashioned toys and games to keep the family entertained in the good old fashioned way.

The Howick Historical Village 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.
