Two shire horses are pictured pulling a passenger cart through the streets of Blists Hill Victorian Town

About

On Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May, the sound of hooves will ring out on the cobbled streets of Blists Hill Victorian Town as teams of horses visit and demonstrate how they helped tradesmen and industrialists carry out their work. 

Heavy horses were essential for some of the industrial activities that took place in the gorge and you can find out why at this fantastic event!

Please note, dogs are not allowed at this event.
