Set on 16 acres, the Historic Village Herberton is a tin mining town with shops, pubs, banks, chemists, grocer, printer, and garage. More than 50 restored period buildings are making this outdoor museum the most significant in Queensland.
The Historic Village Herberton is an outdoor museum presenting the story of Australia’s pioneering past. Its particular focus is on the tin-mining town of Herberton, which is its home. Herberton is the oldest town on the Tablelands, established in 1880 on the back of a tin mining boom.

The Historic Village pays homage to this era when mining dominated the mineral-rich mountains of the Atherton Tablelands. It has a strong interest in turn of the century machinery and small engines, transport, fashion, pharmaceuticals, motor vehicles, and war memorabilia.

Priceless Australian collections from grocery items and tobacco to treasured dolls and toys also feature prominently throughout the museum.
