Hughenden is an outback town on the edge of Australia's vast ancient sea, with a number of significant fossil finds in the area. Undoubtedly the most important discovery is that of the Muttaburrasaurus, the first entire fossil found in Australia. Visit "Hughie" - the seven metre-tall replica displayed prominantly in the centre of town! Hughenden is also surrounded by four national parks, mountainous volcanic basalt country and sweeping black soil plains. It boasts fantastic fishing, swimming, hiking and bird watching, as well as the annual Stamford Races and Community Fun Day, and Hughenden Country Music Festival.
