Creek To Coast Brings TV Crew To Herberton Historic Village

Herberton Historic Village will be beamed to households across Queensland this Saturday (December 1) after a recent visit by Channel Seven’s Creek to Coast.

 
PRLog - Nov. 27, 2012 - The popular TV show, which airs every Saturday at 5pm, is dedicated to exploring the historic gold rush areas and abandoned towns of far north Queensland and Cape York.

The show’s journey began at Herberton Historic Village, before heading to Mount Mulligan, Palmer River, Maytown, Jowalbinna and finishing at Daintree.

Producers said there were a lot of tough 4WD tracks to tackle as they took on “the old coach road” between Maytown and Laura and the Creb Track near Daintree.

Craig Kimberley, owner together with his wife Connie of Herberton Historic Village, said it was a lot of fun to host the TV show for the morning.

“I don’t think we have ever had that many four wheel drives inside the Village at any one time and it was a great talking point for visitors coming for the day.

“The crew all seemed to enjoy themselves, and even had a chance to look around at some of the exhibitions – not surprisingly they spent a lot of time in Day’s Garage, with its large collection of pre-war cars and motorcycles.”

Craig said it was the perfect time for Creek to Coast to visit the Village with a number of new attractions nearing completion.

“Everyone at the Village has been really busy preparing for Christmas as we will have a number of new attractions that will be officially opened on Boxing Day.”

These include a 70-metre suspension bridge across Wild River that will link the two sides of the Village together, a Camp Cook Out serving fresh damper, camp oven stew and billy tea as well as the Chemist Shop, one of the most significant collections of olden-day pharmaceuticals in Australia.
