Haden

Locality

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, and is quite a windy place as a result.

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 to the bird was erected here.

The township was a thriving centre in the early 1900s, with two pubs, three grocer shops, a butcher shop, a branch of the Queensland National Bank and a racecourse. Haden State School was officially opened on May 20, 1912, and first known as Wahoon State School.
