Not much I can say about Hughenden. A county town with a pub. It is part of the dinosaur trail in central Queensland so a lot of the town’s quirky dinosaur features were quite charming. We loved the wheelie bins which were all big fiberglass dinosaur feet or heads. There was quite a lot of metal art throughout the town, which I really loved. Dinosaur and fossil shell murals and dinosaur sculptures throughout.
Before we hit our campsite for the night we had a couple of ciders at the local pub. A great end to a big driving day. The pub was actually quite quirky too with a pool table that was completely round. A big green circle. None of us have seen one like that before. Looked like it got lots of use though. We headed back to swifty for a big George Foreman cookup. Cherelle manned the George Foreman and loaded it with slices of seasoned eggplant, carrot, zucchini, potato and sweet potato. I did the chicken snitznels which are becoming quite a hit on this road trip. I must say we do eat really well and always make an effort to cook. That’s part of the fun for us. Crack a couple of bottles of wine and start whipping up some fine food. Sherrie always sneaks an assortment of chocolate biscuits into the shopping trolley so after dinner its cups of tea and a buffet of biscuits.
Once again not much to say about Hughenden only that I can see that our stay here in central Queensland will be very dinosaur and fossil orientated. No more green grass. Infact the caravan parks out here look like big gravel carparks. Such a shock for us after 2 months of glorious coastal rainforests.
