Description

Gatton is a rural town and locality in the Lockyer Valley Region, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, Gatton had a population of 7,101 people. It is the administrative centre of the Lockyer Valley situated in the Lockyer Valley of South East Queensland. Over recent years, the rural character of the Gatton area has started to be encroached on by the suburban sprawl of metropolitan Brisbane and Ipswich in the east and Toowoomba in the west. The Warrego Highway, which runs east–west through the Shire, has also experienced increasing strip development, with fuel outlets and commercial properties gradually spreading along the highway.
