Herberton - Cities, Towns and Localities

“Village in the Hills”

One of Queensland highest towns at 882m this small town (pop. 1000) has a varied history being the first settlement on the Atherton Tablelands, mining for tin first started here in 1880. Set amongst tall eucalypts and brilliant jacaranda trees the town straddles the Great Dividing Range with views down the slopes on each side.

Today agriculture is the mainstay of the area with maize and potatoes the main industry, tourism as in most towns in this area is growing and with the pleasant climate of this town due to its altitude provides for a less humid lifestyle in the tropics.

Other items of interest in the area include the Railco steam train journey which travels up one of the highest, steepest most spectacular train journey in Queensland passing the Carrington Falls on the way. Take a walk through old Herberton or visit one of the nearby national parks or waterfalls such as Dinner Falls in Mt Hypipamee National Park.
