Hughenden


Hughenden is on the Flinders Highway, that long thread of seal running east-west across the Gulf of Carpentaria, in Australia's north. Essentially it runs from Townsville to Mt. Isa, via Charters Towers, Hughenden, Richmond, Julia Creek and Cloncurry.
It is dotted by small hamlets, rail stops that were once watering stations for the original steam trains, or are junctions for the roads that disappear off into the scrub, with great clusters of station name-posts and impossible km statements. In summer the Wet season makes virtually all these lesser roads impassable for months, and the greasy winter creeks become several km wide.
On this road Hughenden is an important stop, some 270 km west of Charters Towers, the junction of several roads.
