We have a large, accessible carpark directly in front of the Village which can easily accommodate recreational vehicles (caravans, motorhomes etc).

Follow the Kennedy Highway (1) to Atherton, then turn onto the Atherton-Herberton Road for 20 minutes.

Historic Village Herberton is located at 6 Broadway off Herberton Road — just north of Herberton town on the Atherton Tablelands.

We are:

  • 15 minutes drive from Atherton
  • 1hr 45mins from Port Douglas
  • 4 hours from Townsville
  • 90 minutes from Cairns

At approx 750m above sea level, the Atherton Tablelands climate is cooler and fresher than the coast. This makes it ideally suited for preserving the well aged buildings in the collection at Historic Village Herberton.


  • The village is located 90 minutes from Cairns
  • It is recommended to plan at least 3 hours at the village
  • The village is accessible to everyone, including dogs on leashes
