Kempton

Once a busy coaching stop, this colonial town is still the type of place you might spot a horse trotting down the main street. You’ll have to hop off the Heritage Highway to visit Kempton, now that the 1820s village is bypassed, bit it is worth exploring. With elegant 19th century buildings and rolling hills as its backdrop, Kempton appears like a little town trapped in time.

Along the main street there are antique and second hand stores to rummage through, coaching inns, a hearty country pub and elegant St Mary’s Church of England. The nearby cemetery reveals glimpses of Kempton’s early days and those who called it home.

Along the streetscape, keep an eye out for signs that tell Kempton’s story.
At the southern end of town is Dysart House, the home of Redlands Distillery and an impressive 19th century mansion. Tastings and a distillery tour are a wonderful way to spend a few hours

Highlights not to miss

  • Visit Redlands Distillery at Dysart House (10am-4pm Mon-Sat)
  • Explore the town’s history at St Mary’s Church and adjacent cemetery
  • Antique shopping
  • Kempton Festival, every February. Watch the sheep racing!
