Patient draught horses pulling ploughs and chugging farm engines from the earliest days of district agriculture took visitors to Eulah Creek back in time on Sunday.
The popular annual Eulah Creek Vintage Machinery day drew hundreds to enjoy Eulah Creek community hospitality under blue skies.
Displays of the lovingly restored and fully working engines which once powered district farming in the 1800s and early 20th Century fascinated visitors.
Draft horses ploughed the fields in demonstrations of the days when farming necessarily proceeded at a much slower pace.
Vintage and veteran cars, side by side with classic tractors, craft and food stalls, barbecue lunch and afternoon tea served up by volunteers made a great family day out for visitors.
The not-for-profit day raises funds for the maintenance of the Beulah Park Hall at the Eulah Creek common.
