Welcome to Muttaburra

The Muttaburra Community welcomes you to the home of the Muttaburrasaurus Langdoni. We hope you stay awhile and look around to learn about our past, present and future.

The Muttaburra community is located roughly in the geographical centre of Queensland. The main industries are beef cattle, sheep meat and wool, macropod harvesting and tourism.

Muttaburra was named after the aboriginal tribe Mootaburra; an aboriginal word meaning “the meeting of waters”. Tower Hill River, Mount Cornish Creek, the Landsborough River which all runs into the Thomson River, meet in the vicinity of Muttaburra. This mosaic of channels flows on to Lake Eyre during the wet season.

Improved roads and facilities make this area an attractive outback holiday destination. Muttaburra is linked by sealed roads to Longreach,  in the south, via Barcaldine, but all northern roads are improved gravel.

Enriched with history, unique landscapes, distinctive flora, fauna and serenity, that allows one to enjoy every moment and experience of the outback.

Travellers can choose to enjoy the tranquility or experience the unique history of our community. Designated camping areas on permanent waterholes to the towns, giving ample opportunities to fish or catch the delectable yabby for the camper’s menu, bird-watch or just relax.
