Haden is a small rural town approximately 50 kilometres north of Toowoomba and 185 kilometres north west from Brisbane. The town is set high on the Great Dividing Range, resulting in a high number of windy days.
There is a picturesque lookout on the Haden-Maclagan Road to the west of the town. The brush turkey, known to local Aboriginal people as wahoon, was prevalent in the area in Haden's early days and in 2002 a monument was erected there.
The Haden township was a thriving centre in the early 1900s, with two pubs, three grocer shops, butcher shop, Queensland National Bank - and a racecourse. Haden State School was officially opened on May 20, 1912, and first known as Wahoon State School.
