Tarampa - General Store (3 Nov 2007)

Tarampa is a very small settlement north of the Warrego (Brisbane-Toowoomba) highway. According to the Esk Shire Council website "Tarampa is a farming district on the southern side of Lockyer Creek, opposite the Mount Tarampa district. Tarampa derives its name from the Tarampa Run which had been taken up in 1847. The Tarampa State School opened in 1880 and a receiving office later to become a Post Office opened in 1881".

There's much more to Tarampa so I'll do a more thorough photographic investigation next time I'm nearby.
