Vintage Australia comes alive as our pioneers climb out of the history books at the Historic Village Herberton for one weekend a year. See experts in their field demonstrate blacksmithing, wood chopping, tin panning, small engines and more. With lots of fun entertainment for the children, great local entertainment and train rides for the family, there is so much to see and do over the two-day event.
Don’t forget to dress up with Fashions on the Field prizes for the best-dressed kids and adults. Normal admission prices apply for Saturday and Sunday during Pioneer Weekend.
