Gatton is the largest town and the business centre of the Lockyer Valley. The fertile Lockyer Valley of South East Queensland is home to the rich farming region, with Gatton just 60 minutes from Brisbane and 40 mins from Toowoomba. An RV friendly town with a 48 hour rest area close to the CBD, Gatton is sure to delight. Known for its spectacular scenic backdrop of steep hills and mountains of The Great Dividing Range, Gatton offers a range of diverse cafes, restaurants and hotels all with great coffee and menus with so many fresh delicious options you won't go hungry. Just out of town is the Lockyer Valley Cultural Centre, a purpose built facility which houses the Library, Art Gallery, Cafe, Function and Conference rooms, Visitor Information Centre and The Queensland Museum, add to this the beautiful backdrop of Lake Apex. Take a walk around the lake, visit the 'Lights on the Hill' Trucking memorial, and enjoy bird watching within the fauna sanctuary. If you're a footy fan head to the Cahill Park Sports Complex (home to the Gatton hawks) and Mr Ken's Thai is the place for you. Cahill Park facilities include function room, bistro, bar, UBET and gaming room. The University of Queensland Gatton Campus is only five minutes from the Central Business District and has a wealth of history including the old Foundation Building.
