  • The Herberton Historic Village is amazing. It brings memories of earlier times with well preserved artifacts and buildings. The schoolhouse is a must...try the tests for 3rd Grade students.  more »
  • Not very well advertised as a tourist activity, but if you love your history, then its great to see. You could spend hours weaving in and out of each building/vehicle and certainly lose track of time....  more »

  • Very Worthwhile visit but You must allow at least Three Hours to look around. Their Tea room EXCELLENT service and Product. One of the BEST Milkshakes I have had in Australia.
  • Really beautifully researched and set out as was with many precious items from the period. Fascinating accompanying descriptions and explanations. We could have spent more time if we had known how much there was to see and enjoy. Good cafe available too. Best of all we arrived and exitted with the local Herberton restored railway which runs at weekends.
