Cunnamulla is the name everyone has heard and it conjures up nostalgic images of stockmen, shearing and days when everyone had time for a yarn. In pride of place in the town centre is a bronze statute of the ‘Cunnamulla Fella’ immortalising the larrikin in all Australians, he sits on his swag enjoying the moment.
