If you happened to visit Gatton Town and have some evening to spare, Ho for a evening walk at Lake Apex Park. The lakeside is so peaceful that you can hear thousands of birds chipping and yapping away from a far distance.

Excellent place to visit to get Brochures and Information on the local area. Helpful staff with local knowledge. Would be a great place for Backpackers and Travellers to visit to get 1st hand information on not just the Lockyer Valley but surrounding areas as well.

We had a work team meeting here and the room was spacious and has audio equipment if needed. There were 12 of us but the room would easily fit twice that. There is free Wi-Fi. The cafe is right there and serves very nice food.
