We found the Herberton Historical Village very enjoyable. It was beautifully displayed & you almost felt that you could have been in the same era. The demonstrations where amazing & were open to questions no problems. The attention to detail is phenomenal & you can feel the love that has been given in order to give to all the Customers/Tourists the experience that would be expected so when you leave you have a fabulous memory. We would not hesitate to recommend this Village to anyone & sorry that we could not spend more time checking this Historical Village out.

Very informative so much history across a wide range of topics in the one place. Make sure you give yourself ample time to see everything. Plus we were fortunate enough to visit on a day there were local live acts performing ‘Tin Pannikin Project’ Some great talent made for a lovely afternoon.

Very interesting , life certainly has changed. A good couple of days to be spent take the time
