The small township of Ayton, on the Bloomfield Track north of the Bloomfield River, was the site of Queensland’s first sugar mill, and once had an active timber and tin-mining industry.

Today it's known for its stunning scenery and great estuary fishing. Weary Bay is close by, and you can stroll along the beach named by a very tired James Cook, or hire a boat to explore the Bloomfield River and even the secluded Cedar Bay National Park.
