Visitors to Buckingham House will be transported back to the days of old, learning skills such as pioneer style washing, how to make butter and damper, as well as gardening tips for a prosperous fruit and vegie patch.

Vintage games on the day will include good old fashioned quoits, skittles and hula hoops.

Children can step back in time in the Old Wanneroo Schoolhouse to try their hand at using a slate board and chalk.

This heritage event is free and suitable for all ages.

Event details:

Sunday 6 May / 1pm – 4pm
Buckingham House, 10 Neville Drive, Wanneroo

The City is running other events to mark the Australian Heritage Festival, including Noongar bush tucker walks on the shores of Lake Joondalup to learn how local Noongar people use plants for bush tucker and medicines, and informative olive oil workshops at the Wanneroo Regional Museum as a nod to the City of Wanneroo’s market gardening past.
