Information

Augathella began as a bullock team camp beside the Warrego River but today mainly services the surrounding sheep properties but has basic supplies and facilities for the traveller passing through. The Warrego River provides good catches of Murray Cod, Yellowbelly, Golden Perch and Catfish.

Experience Augathella “Meat Ant Country” and the rich historical culture the town provides. Take a stroll through Meat Ant Park located right next door to the town library. View the giant meat ant sculpture in the park; it is over a million times the size of an actual ant. While there you can view the storyboards located around the park. Some history on the notorious bushranger brothers Patrick and James Kenniff can be found at the Kenniff tree. The brothers were a part of one of Queensland’s largest manhunt lasting over thirteen years.

View all the amazing murals along the main street, created by locals to showcase their love of the region. From the great sheep stations to the 1950’s movie “Smiley”. Then to show their creativity the town also displays various wrought iron sculptures around the town.

A must see is the Boadicea Gallery and Cinema, where on exhibition is over 150 heritage photos and where you view the 1956 movie “Smiley”.

For some more recent history take a look at the Q150 shed, Queensland’s most unique entertainment venue. It travelled the state in 2009 providing communities a free night of entertainment.
