Historic Village Herberton Reviews
The Herberton Historic Village was a stop off on our day's outing on the Tablelands but it turned out to be the highlight. Such a fabulous place to visit and well worth the $29 per adult entrance fee.... more »

Amazing place! Could of easily spent all day. Spotlessly clean, really enjoyed the banana and honey smoothie from the coffee shop more »
Its been 2 yrs since our last visit. So much has been done. This place always impresses me. Staff great. You really need to spend the whole day. We spent 4 1/2 hrs and still didn't get to see it all. So much to look at. Lovely teahouse, good food and reasonably priced. Great coffee too!! .
Have a gander at how life used to be. Very worthwhile thing to do if in the area. Easy to “waste a whole day”.
Wonderful fascilities, history is bought to life at this marvellous tourist attraction. Allow yourself the day to explore the whole facility. The teahouse provides delicious meals whether you're looking for morning/afternoon tea or lunch. We held our Christmas break-up here last Saturday. Wonderful.
Every building is a museum in itself and a monument to the people of Herberton. You need at least one full day to appreciate the detail and love that the owners and staff put in to makes this a very worthwhile experience. Beats Sovereign Hill easy...
Clearly a massive labour of love restoring and maintaining this amazing village, it is clear why it has won so many awards. I experienced billy tea, stew and damper - how special! Make sure you have plenty of time to take it all in and visit the teahouse and giftshop before you go.
