About Cunnamulla


Population: 1200

Visit Cunnamulla where the handshake’s stronger and the smile lasts longer.

Immerse yourself in a true outback experience. Discover meaningful connections with people and places. Just ask the larger than life Cunnamulla Fella!

If experiencing the real deal is your thing, then Cunnamulla has the goods. Passionate local tour operators, local station stays and genuine outback experiences sure to tick the box. Fully immerse yourself in typical outback station life with a choice of working properties to visit. Get a taste of the Outback life. See sheep shearing (in season) or cattle mustering, go on a water run or help with some of the daily station tasks.

The township of Cunnamulla was created by Cobb & Co. on the third of September 1879, when the first coach drove through from Bourke. Today it is the only surviving south-west town along the original route.

This says a lot about the people of Cunnamulla. Tough, resilient, creative….down to earth folk who love their country. While wool growing and beef production are still the main industries, the new kids on the block are irrigated table grape farming, organic wheat and organic lamb production.

The mighty Warrego River is on the edge of town. Kayaking, fishing, swimming ….it’s the perfect place for a bush picnic.

Cunnamulla locals are sharing folk, so don’t be shy when asking for the best spot to throw in a line. Hire a kayak and discover the secrets of this natural wonderland. Keep an eye out for the cheeky Cooper Creek turtle as you paddle the tranquil waters.

Keen ‘twitchers’ will love discovering the region’s native birds in their natural environment too. Cunnamulla has some of the best natural sand hills in Australia. Just seeing them is an eye-catching feast. Picture vibrant red sand hills contrasting brilliant blue skies. It’s photo heaven!

If ‘sight-doing’ is more your thing, then get ready to burn a few calories with some sand-boarding. Climb to the top of the sand-hill then feel the rush as you carve up the sand on the way down.

Cunnamulla Fella

The Cunnamulla Fella is a song written by Stan Coster and sung by Slim Dusty. He is an iconic Australian Bush character. The town of Cunnamulla has erected a statue of the Cunnamulla Fella as a tribute to Stan and Slim and to the ‘ringers’ of the bush.

These giant megafauna fossils have been found here and are on display at the @eromanganhmuseum Natural History Museum. This one is a Diprotodon.

Eulo is situated approximately 70km west of Cunnamulla.

Tips - drop into the Eulo Queen Hotel for a meal, visit the Paroo Patch for your handmade leather goods and of course, a soak in the Eulo Mud Baths.
