  • It was very interesting to visit the Museum of cameras and espionage in Herberton, Queensland, Australia. Displays mini cameras with a photographic technology for more than 100 years. Discover mini photos for details. Photographic forms of espionage teach tricks very accurate but at the same time funny as used. The photographic techniques are very different from the digital technology that is currently used. In this museum is the minis mini camera reels and old photos with incredible sharpness. Of different sizes, very old but great stability with cameras to capture moments and excellent photography. Anyone visiting Australia can be a beautiful experience on the issue of espionage, and old photographic techniques, since used appliances and cameras covering the purpose of trapping the opposing camps and enemy information. I really liked and would see it used photography is great!

  • The spy & camera Museum is located in the oldest House in the city. For each technology - or photography interested an absolute must. The House, with its old facilities, has the flair of the past time and fits very well with the theme and the exhibits. Michael, a well-known landscape, animal and wedding photographer who is also engaged in the restoration of old photographs, is the owner and the soul of the Museum. During a guided tour, explains he starting with spy cameras, which have been developed since the beginning of photography in all countries the exhibits in detail, and explains them in detail. Entertaining it leads through the theme, flavored with the one or the other anecdote. The civilian cameras also have models from its beginnings up to the age of digital photography. Technical development, in the context of industrial development, Michael brings its visitors with an amazing knowledge and attention to detail closer. Many of the exhibits are unique pieces, which can be seen in any other Museum in the world. A visit which is worthwhile.

  • Best little museum in the Far North!!!! Awesome display of cameras. The tours, run by the owner, are very interesting, interactive and fun. A must see
  • Hotdamm ,could have spent an entire day perusing, subjects wide and varied, still running back over information in my mind.
  • Loved the place, even though we only paid for a self tour, Michael came out & talked us through many of the cameras, particularly the spy units.
  • fabulous bits of history , thoroughly enjoyed the informative tour of the Spy camera museum well worth the visit
  • Michael is a walking wiki of knowledge when it comes to the history of cameras, great place to spend and hour or two as there is lots and lots of things to see and do in his museum. Top Spot! #herberton #queensland #museum
