School Holiday Fun

From train rides to playgrounds, engines and more, there is plenty to keep the kids entertained at the Historic Village Herberton these school holidays.  

The Historic Village Herberton owners Craig and Connie Kimberley said June/July school holiday period was a great time to visit the Village with lots of planned activities. 

“As the Queensland school holidays come to an end, the New South Wales holiday period commences, so we like to make sure we have lots to see and do to keep the little ones entertained for hours,” he said. 

Activities include engine start ups of some of the Village most iconic vehicles and machinery including the Dennis Fire Truck, 1923 Harley Davidson and Indian motorcycle, T Model Ford, Chev Whitecar and the Morris Cowley.

Across the bridge, over the other side of the river, there will be scheduled train rides, traditional bush cooking, the John Deere Tractors, and the start up of Keid’s Sawmill. 

Other highlights include the steam engines and Village curator Darryl Cooper blacksmithing. 

“Everyone has such a great time at the Village and certainly over the holiday period, we are buzzing with lots of activities and people about. It is a fantastic time to stop for a visit.”

It is recommended visitors allow at least three hours for a visit. The Village is open seven days 9am to 5pm.
