Yarra Valley Machinery Preservation Society display
A very popular attraction at the Field Days is the display of machinery of yesteryear, and the Yarra Valley Machinery Preservation Society will once again feature a working display of their restored machinery for visitors to the venue.
Many hours and much care are devoted to the restoration of the machinery and the members are very happy to share their stories and discuss the features of their displays.

Arts and crafts, patchwork, lavender products, Tupperware, ladies and children's clothing and confectionery will feature, along with such demonstrations as weaving and blacksmithing.
We look forward to the continued support of our many Exhibitors who have attended in the past, as well as welcoming and encouraging new businesses to participate, as we work together to ensure the continued success of the Wandin Silvan Field Days.
