What do you imagine it would be like to live in Queensland in the 1880s, when pioneering settlers were pushing farther north and establishing towns along the way? Would life be difficult here in the hills, where meat had to be butchered, clothes had to be sewn, and boots were all made by hand, or would you welcome a simpler time that was free of our fast, modern day stress? These are questions you can ask for yourself at Historic Village Herberton, a phenomenally preserved example of life in 19th century Queensland. Wander the dusty village streets past 50 different buildings that date to the town’s original founding, when tin was suddenly discovered in these hills and miners flocked in droves. For over 90 years the town of Herberton boomed as a tin mining town, and at one point even had 17 pubs where the miners could drink and get loose. Today tourism drives the town, the most popular sight being the historical village where you can stroll past the chemist’s shop, peruse the frock shop, or admire the carriages and old time cars inside the wooden garage. Grab a scone at the Bakersville tea rooms or a pint at the Tin Pannikin Pub, and experience firsthand was life was like out here on the Queensland frontier. At an elevation of 3,000 feet in the rolling Atherton Tablelands, Herberton is Queensland’s highest town—and also one of its coldest—and the site of the best Australiana found anywhere in the country.
