The Historic Village Herberton owners Craig and Connie Kimberley said the July school holiday period was a fantastic time to visit, with lots of planned activities and interactive displays.
“The Village is a bustling place over the winter months and as the Queensland school holidays come to an end in July, the New South Wales and Victorian holiday period begins.”
Craig said there was lots for families to do, from watching Village curator Darryl Cooper blacksmith to the engine start-ups and train rides.
“Families also enjoy wondering through over 60 exhibits, from the toy shop to the old 1880 school house.”
Across the bridge, over the other side of the river, there will be scheduled train rides, the John Deere Tractors, the depression house and Ted Keid’s sawmill.”
Other highlights include the steam engines and of course Elderslie House.
“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.
