Augathella

Affectionately known as ‘Meat Ant Country’, this little town with a big heart has everything from serene fishing spots to non-stop action at their annual Easter Weekend.

Packed in pioneer history, Augathella was home and stomping ground to notorious bushrangers, the Kenniff Brothers and owes its very existence to the bullock teams that camped along the Warrego all those years ago.

Pop into Boadicea Gallery & Cinema to view an exhibition of heritage photographs and watch the 1956 movie ‘Smiley’ (based upon a local identity) or wander around town and look at the wonderfully rustic wrought iron sculptures and murals that line the main street.

If you’re looking for a dose of fair dinkum outback hospitality, Augathella is the place to be!
