Aratula is a small town in South East Queensland, approximately 60 kilometres southwest of Ipswich, just east of Cunningham’s Gap (Is the centre of the Main Range National Park and is the site of a large stone cairn memorial to the early explorers. Captain Logan, Allan Cunningham, and Botanist Charles Fraser). Warril Creek passes very close to the town.

Aratula is part of Boonah Shire Council. Local attractions include nearby Moogerah Peaks National Park, Main Range National Park, Lake Moogerah and ballooning.

Aratula is a common rest-stop for travellers coming eastward across the Great Dividing Range. There is a caravan park and a hotel just off the highway.

Small pleasant village on the Cunningham Hwy at the foot of Cunningham’s Gap. Great place to stop for fuel and recharge the batteries.

Several art and craft shops mix in with a hotel, school, hall, service station, caravan park and more. Great place to just get away from it all.
