THE THIRD MURAL

Augathella, aptly named the 'meat ant' country, has unveiled their spectacular mural in the third water-tower art piece added to the trail. Capturing the great pioneering spirit of the Outback, this mural boasts brilliant colours that tell the tale of our stockmen, our bullock teams, and our beautiful natural landscape that is iconic to the Augathella region. You won't want to miss this sight!

Bushranger Paradise

Have you heard the stories? 

Amongst the beautiful, wild landscape of Augathella lies a deep history of bushrangers, stockmen and bullock teams that helped carve the Outback into what it is today. 

The notorious bushranger brothers, Patrick and James Kenniff - known for their part in the largest manhunt in Queensland, lasting over 13 years - can be found under the iconic Kenniff tree.
