Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement - Part 2

 

 Victoria, Australia

 

Part 1 here - Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement
 

One of Swan Hill's most notable attractions, the Pioneer Settlement offers a full day's entertainment for the whole family. Established in 1963, the Pioneer Settlement allows visitors to experience life in the Mallee for our early settlers from the early 1800s to the 1930s. Visitors enter into a typical 1920s Mallee street complete with tearooms, lolly shop, music store and drapery. Activities include having a poster printed at the Echo Printers Shop; dressing up in old fashion costume at the Photography Parlour; and watching the blacksmith make horseshoes. You can chose to wander the site on foot or enjoy a relaxing drive around in our complimentary horse and carriage or vintage car rides. Murray river cruises aboard the PS Pyap and an evening Sound & Light show run daily. The Pioneer Settlement is growing and moving into a new phase of development, bigger, brighter and better; and the first concept plans are out. They will provide better protection for the larger objects currently in the open; better story telling in the whole Settlement and a new Mallee Interpretive Centre with dedicated galleries to introduce our visitors to the Mallee, and the Pioneer Settlement. The Pioneer Settlement is located on Monash Drive, Swan Hill and is open from 9:30am – 4:30pm everyday (except Christmas and Boxing Day). For further information please call 1800 981 911 or visit our website www.pioneersettlement.com.au

Two recently exposed Frauds

used to support evolution

Why do evolutionists, in the tradition of the famous ‘Piltdown Man’

and other hoaxes of the past, keep on promoting this sort of thing

(especially in textbooks)?  Such deceptions are not because

people promote something they know is false—the perpetrators

of such frauds believe evolution. Check it out for yourself.

"In the beginning was the Word*, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him  

nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men...

He* came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to

them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who

were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."

( * Jesus )   Gospel of John  ch.1  vs.1-4 & 11-13.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
