Cunnamulla is a picturesque town situated on the Warrego River in Southern-Central Queensland. Cunnamulla is an integrated community of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. The main industries in Cunnamulla are beef, sheep, wool, apiary, grapes, opal mining and tourism. Due to its proximity to the Warrego River, Cunnamulla is also a terrific spot for fishing, waterskiing and swimming. With tree-lined streets and historic buildings, Cunnamulla offers an authentic country lifestyle with distinct old-world charm.

“Cause I’m the Fella, From Cunnamulla, Yes, I’m the Cunnamulla Fella!” Written by Stan Coster and sung by the late Slim Dusty, ‘The Cunnamulla Fella’ is the anthem of this true blue town. If you’re going to live in Cunnamulla, you’re going to need to learn these lyrics by heart. The meaning behind this song, hard work and easy living, is embedded in the town and the community. The song’s hero is even immortalised in a bronze statute in front of the Paroo Shire Hall, right in the centre of town.

A must-have experience is the Cunnamulla Fella Festival in November. The highlight of the Festival is the PBR Challenger Series Bull Ride. With substantial prize money, you’ll be tempted to enter yourself… until you see what the riders have to endure…
