Herberton Historical Village

Herberton - Saturday May 14

After Brody's field hockey game we drove up to the Tablelands and an hour and a half later we were there.  Herberton is similar to Heritage Park in Calgary, but not as spread out.  We enjoyed looking at all the interesting old items including the cameras, typewriters, and record players.  Brody and Hailey kept playing on the old typewriters, Darby liked the old cameras the best.  Glad we were able to take Brody as his class had come here for an excursion that he missed when he went to Melbourne for the F1 race.  We spent a few hours exploring the village streets and old shops.

Knew we'd find him here!

Toy store- "I recognize that game!"

Reminded me of Mom's doll

Working wind mill near the river

Still learning in school

Comfy desks?
Now why don't they sell CC here?

On our drive home we stopped at Hasties Swamp and saw lots of birds and interesting trees.  We noticed the sign and turned in for another adventure.
