Flinders Hwy, Qld


Flinders Highway is a highway that crosses Queensland east to west, from Townsville on the Pacific coast to Cloncurry (Barkly Highway continues from Cloncurry to the Northern Territory border at Camooweal and beyond). Flinders Highway passes a number of small outback towns. Typical outback landscape predominates towards the inland. Formerly National Route 78, Queensland began to convert to the alphanumeric system much of Australia had adopted in the early-2000s and is now designated as A6. Flinders Highway is also known as Overlander's Way. Its entire length is part of the National Land Transport Network (formerly Auslink).

We drove along the Flinders Highway in Queensland when towing our caravan from Townsville to Cloncurry. The road surface is very good but the road can be quite undulating between Julia Creek and Cloncurry - take is slowly so that the van does not bounce up and down too much.  

There is plenty of traffic on this Highway but we found it easy going with some lovely small towns to stay the night - Hughenden and Julia Creek . Make sure you call into the Visitor Information Centres along the way - there have been some great dinosaur fossils and bones found in this area -

  • Hughenden - Flinders Discovery Museum
  • Richmond - Kronosaurus Korner.
