Cunnamulla

Cunnamulla, Paroo Area
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.

Eulo

The “Montville of the Outback”, Eulo is a small community with a large pride which is evident when you visit.

Mungallala, Maranoa Area
Mungallala, said to mean 'food and water' is the site of a cypress sawmill, located about half way between Mitchell and Morven where the Warrego Highway crosses the Mungallala Creek.
