Hampton, QLD

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.

By night, the outback is deathly quiet, with the only light provided by the stars and the moon - a perfect oportunity for stargazing. Explore the isolated heart of the country, meet and connect with Aboriginal people and experience one of the oldest living cultures in the world. Go ‘walk-about’ and immerse yourself with Australia’s endless outback horizons.
