This is one fantastic destination. We are currently doing a house sit in Herberton for two weeks. We have passed through but never stayed here before. We decided to do the tourist thing while we were here and make the most of our stay.
I can not rave enough about this Historic village. It is privately owned and staffed mainly by permanents with some volunteers helping out. It is not only old rusting stuff from years gone by but includes a massive collection of fully restored and working machinery and buildings. We quickly decided to take advantage of their pay for one and come back for another two days. Believe me one day is definitely not enough.
And the blacksmith making some very interesting gear.
As I Have said to rave about this place does not do it justice so I will post a heap of pics which will be just a brief expose of the Village.I will leave the pictures large so they can be expanded for a better view if you fancy.
It is impossible to show all the wonderful sights to be seen in this place. Suffice to say it is a must see if you are in the Tablelands.
