Shantytown Heritage Park is set on 500 acres of native rainforest. The town and surrounding buildings consists of 30 shops and buildings to explore.
Children are well catered for at Shantytown with flying fox (zip wire) playground, treasure hunts to complete (available for Reuben Waite’s General Store) bush walks and of course The Beehive packed with delicious old fashioned lollies (including the famous Remarkables Sweet Shop range)
We recommend at least 1.5 hours to fully appreciate all of the attractions and activities that are available at Shantytown
