The fully sealed Flinders Highway (Overlanders Way) runs from Townsville to Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory.  Hughenden is 376km east of Townsville and 519 km west of Mount Isa.  Access from the north is through the Kennedy Developmental Road. This partly sealed road is best checked before travelling as rain can change road conditions very quickly.  Heading south on the Kennedy Developmental Road to Winton is a sealed road open to all vehicles. The unsealed road to Muttaburra also takes travellers south and is only recommended for 4WD and high clearance vehicles.  Hughenden is also part of Australia's Dinosaur Trail which connects Hughenden, Richmond and Winton together in a prehistoric trail for young and old.
