Pioneer Weekend Historic Village Herberton

Herberton Heart of the North

Open daily

Australian film legend Jack Thompson brings the Far North’s pre-colonial and pioneering history to life in an epic movie experience premiering at the Historic Village Herberton on May 6.

Two years in the making, Herberton Heart of the North, combines special effects and digital imagery of the calibre of Star Wars and Avatar movies to create an immersive journey through the region’s history from local First Nations peoples to the post-colonial search for riches.

Produced by Joe Connor of Renegade Films, audiences will have the opportunity to see Herberton’s history come to life with sweeping panoramas on the huge 12 metre by 3 metre screen, accompanied by a rousing original musical score by Mick Thomas of Weddings, Parties, Anything fame.
