Description

Stonehenge may not resemble its namesake in the United Kingdom, nevertheless this Outback Queensland town is something like a sentinel. It is one of only three areas chosen by the Defence Department as site for the Over the Horizon radar initiative. Though a long way from the ocean this system actually guards the coastline.

The name Stonehenge does not come from standing stones, rather the remains of a stone fortress built for the bullock drivers when they stayed overnight. The main industries around Stonehenge are sheep and cattle grazing.

Stonehenge is ideally suited for bird watching enthusiasts, with the Thomson River just one kilometre from town. Photograph the colourful profusion of galahs, corellas and cockatoos, as well as brolgas, emus, spoonbills and wild budgerigars.

Less than four kilometres from town is an unexpected series of magnificent Rock Holes shaded by ghostly white gum trees, the perfect place to cool off and enjoy the isolation.

Put your name in the stone address book among the many others emblazoned by travellers. You'll find it on the Jundah to Stonehenge road.
