Cunnamulla

Cunnamulla locals reckon that in their town, the handshake's stronger and the smile lasts longer. Perhaps that's why Slim Dusty's 'Cunnamulla fella' has become the epitome of bush folk and the bronze statue of him in the main street immortalises the larrikin in all Australians as he sits on his swag enjoying the moment.

Visit the Cunnamulla Fella Visitor Centre for a look into this bush legend and to collect maps of town and the many walks on offer. While you're at the Centre, take a look through the art gallery and interpretive displays explaining local history, opal mining, wool production, native vegetation and the importance of the Great Artesian Basin and its precious water.

The Cunnamulla Heritage Trail will let you glimpse the region's past including the development of a local pastoral industry that still supports the town today. Walking trails along the river and through the Cunnamulla bush land will encourage you to slide effortlessly into the relaxed way of outback life, but keep your eyes peeled for plentiful native wildlife hiding in the scrub.

Of course, one of the greatest pleasures of an outback holiday is having a yarn with the locals. If a yarn over the bar of one of the number of great bush pubs isn't enough, Cunnamulla hosts many regular social events including bowls and tennis, as well as the famous Cunnamulla Fella Festival. The Festival is held each year in August and its program includes country music and the excitement of a professional (PBR) bull ride.
