The Historic Village Herberton has grown to become one of the best known living museums not only in Queensland, but Australia wide. In 2017, it was recognised by TripAdvisor as one of the Top 10 Museums to visit in the country. 

The reason - we make history fun, exciting and interesting to learn about! 

So, prepare to be wowed as you step back in time to an era that has long been forgotten. With more than 60 lovingly restored period buildings, including the 130 year old Elderslie House as well as antique motor vehicles, turn of the century machinery, small engines, rare John Deere tractors and more, your visit to the Village will be truly unforgettable.

See how life used to be with live demonstrations, camp cooking, train rides, working machinery and more on scheduled weekends, school and public holidays.

Don’t forget to try the delicious homestyle cooking at the Bakerville Tearooms. 

Plan to spend the day, or take advantage of our complimentary three-day return pass. 

Minimum recommended time at the Village is three hours.
