Visitor Information Centres

A Network Of Information

We have five information centres across the region, creating an information network and providing community hubs for locals and visitors. Information centres aren’t just for visitors. They are a treasure trove of information and opportunities waiting to be discovered. Head to a local centre to find new experiences, learn about each area’s history and culture, and connect with volunteers who love our community and region.

You can also promote the tourism offerings and opportunities of your business at all of our information centres. Contact us or drop in to find out how.

Volunteer With Us

Our information centres survive and thrive because of the contribution of volunteers. No specialist skills are required and we’ll provide all the necessary training and ongoing support.

Shop Local

Our information centres have a wide range of local gifts and produce. Choose from arts and crafts, boutique produce, books, souvenirs and so much more. It’s a great way to support local producers and promote the region.

The Great Northern Mine was once the heart of a booming tin industry. Herberton’s hills rang with the explosive booms of dynamite, while the racket of machinery at the Great Northern Battery was an incessant backdrop to daily life.

The Herberton Mining Museum now provides a relaxing retreat amongst towering gums, offering stories of those early days for all to enjoy and appreciate.

From here take the Great Northern Mine Walk — an interpreted walk through the original mine workings and the start of the Herberton Fire Trails.

Dig into the past in our museum. Push our buttons and crank our handles! You can pan for tin or pump your own water, learn to use a hand drill to make holes for your explosives! Make sure you look up and down, and search every corner … this museum is every explorer’s dream!
