Hughenden is a dinosaur town, boasting a replica of the Muttaburrasaurus, whose bones were discovered in 1963 and some teeth and other bones were also discovered around Hughenden. One reason for fossils being discovered must be the dry climate, which means the rocks are usually bare of vegetation. The town is home to the Hughenden Dinosaur Festival, which attracts tourists and includes entertainment and other events.
On the road from Hughenden to Julia Creek we stop in Richmond. On the outskirts of the town we find Lake Fred Tritton which is a great place for a cup of coffee and a scone. The lake has a unique attraction – a golf hole in the middle of the lake where you can try for a hole in one (probably need an old ball though).
