Augathella is a significant diversion off the Warrego highway to the Warrego River at which the Augathella Township is located.

In 1858 A.C. Gregory passed through the area on the fourth and last expedition in search of the lost Leichardt Expedition. Effectively creating crossroads at what is now Augathella. Pre 1893 the town was known as Ellangowan, but in that year was gazetted Augathella.

The town has a fascinating history with bushrangers, shearers and bullockies all playing a part in the early formation of this remote place.

In 2008 Augathella celebrated the 50th anniversary of the launch of the movie ‘Smiley’.

The local wildlife is clearly welcome in the town.

The Augathella War Memorial again causes reflection. A small community and so many names.

The Augathella churches are of the modern era.

The sole hotel is has great profile but is restricted to limited entertainment services.

Augathella is community that clearly has a sense of humour and deserves a visit.
