Hervey Bay Historical Village And Museum, Hervey Bay Reviews
Really fascinating. The smallish frontage, can be very deceiving - as it is quite a large property, with numerous displays and various old building set-ups. We only had an hour at hand, however this place really deserves at least a few hours or more - to truly appreciate all the displays on offer. Loved it, and my daughter loved it too... A real find, tucked away from the busy Esplanade area...
This place is just fantastic! Excellent interpretation, volunteer guides are very knowledgeable and the items on display are very well curated. Would definitely go again - so much to see and learn!
Absolutely fascinating, wonderful and informative displays. Spent an enjoyable few hours getting lost in the history of the area. Well done to all the volunteers 10 stars!!!
This is a place every one should go and see, it is so interesting. ..make sure you have plenty of time. It really is fantastic a credit to those who volunteer to run it well worth the visit
Really good mix of local history, the volunteers were great. We ran 650 cub scouts thru there over four days and without any dramas at all. Thank you.
