Kempton is a quaint colonial town settled in the 1820s, with handsome old buildings and 19th century charm set in a landscape of rolling hills and sweeping plains.
These days the village is bypassed by the Midland Highway but still continues to be a stopping point for those wanting quality country food, fine ales and warm cozy log fires.
Signs along the main street tell stories of the town’s historic buildings including charming coaching inns and quaint shops.
There’s a grand and beautiful mansion with imposing outbuildings and elegant churches of all shapes and styles. St Mary’s Church of England, with its square tower and tree-lined entrance, also has an adjacent cemetery that tells of the region’s early days.
Kempton also has antique and second hand stores, accommodation is available at the hotel, in historic cottages, air b&b and there are powered sites and showers available for campers at the local camping grounds.
Kempton is a 40-min drive (49 km) north of Hobart. It’s always cozy at the Huntington Tavern – Kempton.
