Stonehenge

Situated 151 kilometres from Longreach on the Thomson Development Road, Stonehenge heartily welcomes all visitors. When asked what they most enjoy about Stonehenge, people say the warm welcome and peace and quiet. Chat with the local residents to discover some of the history or follow directions to the John Egan Pioneer Track to see some fantastic landscapes and views.

Situated close to the Thomson River just out of flood reach Stonehenge is the ideal spot to relax for a few days.

To sign the visitors book Stonehenge style, you write your name in stone directly beside the main road not far from town. This tradition started years ago by the then mailman - the rest is history! Take some time to read through the many names and places. Please remember if leaving your mark not to remove stones already in use.

XXXX Hill is a scenic vantage point with breathtaking 360 degree views of the Thomson River flood plains and surrounding Johnstone Ranges.

Less than six kilometres from Stonehenge and completely unexpected is a series of magnificent rock holes framed with ghostly white gum trees.

Travel along the John Egan Pioneer Track and discover magnificent landscapes sculptured by nature into the most amazing rock formations over millions of years.

A little further towards Jundah, you crest the jump-up and Swanvale Lookout - a fantastic spot to boil the billy with picnic tables & fire places.

Join the locals at the Stonehenge Hotel for lunch and a cold drink, stop over and take your time to explore this magic landscape.
