Finch Hatton is a rural town located near Mackay. The locality’s name is derived from that of Harold Heneage Finch-Hatton, an imperial federationist and grazier from the United Kingdom. In the 1800s, the area was known simply as Hatton. To avoid confusion with Hatton Vale, Harold’s full family name was used. Harold authored a book called Advance Australia, in which he documented pastoral work and mining in the area.
By 1913, records indicated that Finch Hatton had railway hotels, a cordial manufacturer, three stores and a sawmill. The town was further developed and by 1949, it had a catholic church, a sugar mill, a motor garage and a cinema. Today, Finch Hatton has a museum located at the old railway station, a general store, a primary school and a caravan park. Finch Hatton is also home to two heritage-listed locations: Finch Hatton Railway Station and the Finch Hatton War Memorial.
