Muttaburra - Fast Facts

Tiny township servicing the large properties which surround it.
Located 84 km north of Aramac and 119 km (mostly by dirt road) from Longreach the small town of Muttaburra has two claims to fame. It was the site of the discovery of the Muttaburrasaurus, one of Australia's largest dinosaurs, and it was also the scene of one of the most daring acts of cattleduffing ever performed in Australia. In fact the Mount Cornish homestead was built as an outstation to the huge Bowen Downs station to prevent any future cattleduffing.
