Herberton

This historic tin mining town on the banks of the Wild River is the oldest town on the Atherton Tablelands. Buildings include a wonderful collection of Queensland architectural styles, from churches to public buildings and large houses with wide verandahs. The picturesque town is enhanced by rich colours of golden wattles in winter and purple Jacaranda trees blooming in spring.

The well-preserved town centre can be explored on a self-guided heritage walk and offers interpretive photo posts highlighting historic scenes. Renovated buildings include the butcher's shop, newsagency, cafes, hotel, gift and craft shops. The Mining Museum and Visitor Information Centre offers maps and brochures and presents an interesting and educational interpretation of the region's extensive mining and social history, including John Moffat's Great Northern Mine. The Mine Walk features restored machinery sheds with rare examples of early deep haul shaft mining machinery. Longer scenic walks are popular with visitors and plentiful birdlife and seasonal wildflowers add to the appeal.

On the outskirts of Herberton is the amazing Herberton Historic Village, well-deserved winner of multiple tourism awards. This major attraction features a collection of around 50 historic buildings with fascinating interior displays. Attractions included the award winning Historic Village Herberton, the Spy and Camera Museum and the Railway Museum.

The climate is usually cooler than the coast and snow has even been recorded in winter. Use Herberton as a base to visit historic Irvinebank to the west, Atherton, a short drive down the range, or Mount Hypipamee National Park with its famous crater and waterfall.
