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.

Hughenden State School has 70 students enrolled in primary and 51 in secondary. As a small school we are able to provide a personalised learning journey for our students. This is evidenced in the high percentage of senior students undertaking individualised learning programs ranging from traineeships to introductory tertiary subjects. Hughenden State School is committed to providing every child with a balanced education in a supportive environment. CLICK HERE to find out more about our school community.
