The Real Deal

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. Visitors to Charlotte Plains sheep and cattle station are treated to a welcome soak in their 1890s station bore. Its inviting mineral-laden water comes straight from the Great Artesian Basin.

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 organic wheat, organic beef and lamb production.

Nature’s Bounty

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 sandhills in Australia. Just seeing them is an eye-catching feast. Picture vibrant red sandhills contrasting with 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 up to the top of the sandhill then feel the rush as you carve up the sand on the way down.

Cunnamulla Fella (centre) – You’ll know you’ve arrived when you spot the Cunnamulla Fella. This larger-than-life statue is a tribute to the Aussie larrikin stockman. Slim Dusty has had a hand in making the Cunnamulla Fella famous when he put the lyrics of Stan Coster to song. More recently the song has been performed by Lee Kernaghan.
