Getting to Hughenden

Hughenden has five major roads entering the town, from the north, south, east and west. Situated on the Overlanders Way approximately half-way between Townsville and Mount Isa, the Hughenden region is a hub for many destinations.
 
By Road 
The fully sealed Flinders Highway (Overlanders Way) runs from Townsville to Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory. Hughenden is 376km east of Townsville and 519 km west of Mount Isa. Access from the north is through the Kennedy Developmental Road. This partly sealed road is best checked before travelling as rain can change road conditions very quickly.   Heading south on the Kennedy Developmental Road to Winton is a sealed road open to all vehicles. The unsealed road to Muttaburra also takes travellers south and is only recommended for 4WD and high clearance vehicles. 
 
Please check road conditions prior to travel by contacting the Flinders Discovery Centre on (07) 47 412 970 or the Department of Main Roads on 13 19 40 or www.tmr.qld.gov.au.
