Situated at the top of the escarpment, Hampton is one of the delightful small hamlets located along the New England Highway between Toowoomba and Crows Nest.

Take a break, a coffee and a lungful of fresh mountain air before exploring the antique shop and gift stores. Fresh local produce, from the many farms located around the district, is available for sale at the General Store.

Visit the Hampton Infomation Centre, which is located at the intersection where visitors can choose to venture along the scenic drive to Ravensbourne National Park and possibly also on towards Esk.

Ravensbourne National Park features short bushwalking tracks, a scenic lookout and picnic facilities. Ravensbourne National Park is for day-use visitors only.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

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.
