Gatton

The fertile Lockyer Valley of South East Queensland is home to the rich farming region of Gatton Shire, just 60 minutes from downtown Brisbane.

Known for its spectacular scenic backdrop of steep hills and the mountains of The Great Dividing Range, Gatton is a fast growing region that has maintained its natural beauty and charm. The Gatton Historical Village is keeping local history alive, preserving heritage buildings and memorabilia on the southern border of Lake Apex Park.

There’s much to do here, including a highlight for train enthusiasts – the Spring Bluff Railway, a heritage listed site where you can relax and picnic in the landscaped gardens and learn about its colourful history.

See the natural beauty of the shire at Lake Apex Park, a must for bird watchers and explore the Aboriginal carvings while you picnic by Blackduck Creek. Also visit Glen Rock, the new regional park, comprising of picnic and camping facilities, bush walks, and swimming just 30 minutes from Gatton. For those who relish antique treasures, then the picturesque township of Withcott has a number of shops to browse.

From bushwalking on the scenic mountain trails and exploring heritage treasures, Gatton Shire is a great way to experience a beautiful part of Queensland’s South East.

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
