We actually thought that this was the town called Herberton, but it didn't matter because it was the most complete experience of stepping back into history that we have had so far. The amount of historical objects, is staggering and cover every aspect of life...More

Was not expecting too much from an Australiana Pioneer Village located in a relative out-of-the-way location as the small town of Herberton. Well, my expectations were way off the mark. This place is super impressive with an extensive collection of buildings and artefacts relating to...More

Lots to do and see. The demonstrations were great although the car demo got a bit overcome by the exhaust fumes. Spent about 2 hours just wandering around.

Dear Laura, true - cars of the olden days certainly expel a lot more fumes than the ones we are driving around today. We are glad you enjoyed your visit nonetheless, thank you so much for leaving a review.
