Gatton is a rural town and locality in the Lockyer Valley Region, Queensland, Australia.[3][4] In the 2021 census, the locality of Gatton had a population of 7,851 people.[1]

It is the administrative centre of the Lockyer Valley situated in the Lockyer Valley of South East Queensland.[5]

Recently, 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.[citation needed]

History

Prior to European settlement, the area was occupied by members of the Yuggera Aboriginal language group.[citation needed]

Jagara is one of the Aboriginal languages of South-East Queensland. There is some uncertainty over the status of Jagara as a language, dialect, or a group or clan within the local government boundaries of Ipswich City Council, Lockyer Regional Council and the Somerset Regional Council.[6]

Warrego Highway leading into Gatton

The Gatton area was explored by Major Edmund Lockyer in 1825. A settlement known as Gatton was gazetted in 1855.[7][8] The name Gatton is taken from the village of Gatton in Surrey, England.[3]

The post office opened 1 January 1866, with Frederick Lloyd, a dairyman, as the first postmaster.[9] The small village did not experience significant growth until the mid-1870s, after the railway to Grandchester attracted people to the area.[10]

Catholic priest Father Brun established St Mary's School in 1868.[11] However, in 1892, the only teacher at the school Miss Mary O'Keeffe married James McKeen of Mount Sylvia, and the school closed.[12][13]

The Gatton Congregational Church opened on 26 November 1874.[14] On 14 October 1901 the laying of the foundation blocks of present church was performed by William Drayton Armstrong, the Member of the Queensland Legislative Assembly for Lockyer, together with Alexander Brown Wilson, the architect from Brisbane representing the Queensland Congregational Union.[15][16][17] In 1965 the front of the church was covered with bricks.[18] In June 1977 many Congregational, Methodist and Presbyterian churches amalgamated to form the Uniting Church in Australia with the church in Gatton now known as Lockyer Uniting Church.[15]

In January 1875, Gatton residents convened a meeting to establish a school.[19] In June 1875 tenders were called for the construction of a school building and a teacher's residence.[19] Gatton State School opened on 31 January 1876.[12]

In October 1885, local Anglicans proposed to build a church.[20] In April 1886, the tender of Mr J. Olsen to construct the church for £260 was accepted.[21]

St Mary's Catholic Church was built in 1889 under Father Daniel Walsh, replacing an earlier church. On 29 September 1889, the church was officially opened and dedicated by the Archbishop of Brisbane Robert Dunne.[22] The current church building was officially opened and blessed by Archbishop James Duhig on Sunday 25 August 1963.[23]

The Queensland Agricultural College opened and established an experimental farm in 1897 at Gatton.[24]

In December 1898, three local young people from nearby Blackfellow's Creek were murdered; this incident became known as the Gatton murders, and remains unsolved.[25]

On 20 December 1902, auctioneer Elias Harding offered 36 town lots ranging in size between 0.25 to 0.5 acres (0.10 to 0.20 ha) in the Gaul Estate, being based around Gaul Street (27°33′16″S 152°16′49″E / 27.5544°S 152.2803°E / -27.5544; 152.2803 (Gaul Estate)) and bounded by Old College Road to the north, Allan Street to the east, Hickey Street to the south and Park Lane to the west.[26][27] Only 3 lots were sold.[28]

In 1913, following local agitation,[29] Gatton State School was expanded to offer secondary schooling, which was known by a number of names over the years: Gatton Secondary Department, Lockyer State High School, Gatton Intermediate School, and Gatton State School Secondary Department.[30] On 23 January 1961 it was replaced by a completely separate school, Lockyer District State High School.[12][31]

Our Lady of Good Counsel School was opened on 14 January 1917 by the Sisters of Mercy, following a fund raising campaign by Roman Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane James Duhig.[12][13]

The Gatton Baptist Church was officially formed in October 1935, an offshoot of the Tenthill Baptist Church. The congregation met in the Fallen Soldiers Memorial Hall, until Saturday 13 November 1937 when their first church was dedicated by Reverend John Henry Latimer, President of the Queensland Baptist Union. The building was the top of the hill on Railway Terrace (now 75-77 Cochrane Street, 27°33′40″S 152°16′34″E / 27.5611°S 152.2762°E / -27.5611; 152.2762 (Gatton Baptist Church (former))). It was a timber building, 30 by 24 feet (9.1 by 7.3 m) and cost £300 with most of timber and labour being donated.[32][33] On 12 March 2005 the congregation relocated to their new church at 12 William Street.[34]

The Gatton Corps of the Salvation Army was established in March 1938.[35] The Gatton Circle Corps officially opened their church on the 23 February 1974 with Colonel R. Holz officiating; it was the former Methodist Church on the corner of Old College Road and Ford Street which was sold in January 1974 for $23,500.[36][37]

St Paul's Lutheran Church opened on the corner of Spencer Street and East Street on 2 February 1948. It was replaced by the Peace Lutheran Church which opened on 16 April 1978.[38]

St Mark's Lutheran Evangelican Church was dedicated by Pastor Carl Adolf Gerhard Dohler on Sunday 29 October 1950 with over 500 people in attendance. The building was at the top of Railway Street, where it had "a fine view of the town". It was constructed of cypress pine chamferboard and was 57 by 25 feet (17.4 by 7.6 m).[39] In 1967 the church was relocated to 5 Hunter Street, Brassall, where it was rededicated on 19 November 1967.[40][41]

The Gatton Star is a free, local, community newspaper which began publishing in 1956.[42] The final print edition of The Gatton Star was published on 24 June 2020, when it transitioned to a subscription-based online only model.[43]

Edna Linning and her husband started Gatton Bus Services in 1957 when they heard a high school was being built in town. Originally, the business only had one bus traveling to the college and back; since the mid-1980s, the business has 14 buses, eight of which are used for school children. The buses traveled to Flagstone Creek, Buaraba, Esk, and Forest Hill to pick-up students. The company also organised tours of Gatton for schoolchildren who lived in the city, so they could understand farm life and see how produce is grown and harvested. In its early days the business also ran tours to Brisbane.[44]

Peace Lutheran Primary School opened on 27 January 1982.[12]

At the 2006 census, Gatton had a population of 6,869.[45]

Industry

Gatton Civic Centre

As part of the "Salad Bowl" of the Lockyer Valley, the area is primarily agricultural, with vegetables making up the majority of crops. Fruit was grown extensively in the area until the 1990s, when economic conditions changed and many of the orchards were removed. There is also significant beef and dairy cattle farming, (Stanbroke Beef operates its abattoir at nearby Grantham) along with a growing equine industry, and the town is also a noted producer of fodder crops, particularly prime lucerne hay.

Climate

The area has a humid subtropical climate, with hot, humid summers and mild, sunny winters, albeit with cool nights. Heavy summer rain and warm conditions have provided ideal conditions for the areas agricultural productivity, although droughts and heatwaves can be problematic at times. Temperatures in Gatton are among the warmest in south-east Queensland in summer due to its position away from the coast but at low elevation in the Brisbane Valley.
