Things to do in Hughenden

With four national parks, mountainous volcanic basalt country, sweeping black soil plains and rich fossils and dinosaur areas, Hughenden is a fantastic place to see.

Make sure you visit "Hughie", the seven metre-tall Muttaburrasaurus, and an impressive fossil collection at the Flinders Discovery Centre or "Mutt", a full-bodied Muttaburrasaurus.

Relive the glory days of sheep production and its subsequent demise in the "Shearing the Stragglers" exhibit.  Follow the windmill blades through the streets of Hughenden, exploring the history and art features of the town.  

Enjoy the serenity of Robert Gray Memorial Park, on the banks of the Flinders River.  This is just one four parks in town so grab the picnic basket and blanket!
