Travel back in time 100 million years at the Cunnamulla Fella Centre

When you visit Cunnamulla you are standing on the Eromanga Basin, the world’s largest underground river that flows beneath half of inland Australia.  The water takes almost two million years to travel from its starting point at the Great Dividing Range to where it surfaces in the deserts of central Australia.

To experience this amazing occurrence,  come and visit the Cunnamulla Fella Centre to discover the home of ancient animals and Australia’s largest dinosaurs that roamed the Eromanga Sea many millions of years ago.

The experience begins when you enter an old mine lift that takes you back in time, through the earth and back to a unique dinosaur cave, deep in the middle of ancient sandstone rocks that form part of the Great Artesian Basin. You will experience an old opal mine and hear about the Yowah Nut and the early days in the opal fields. 

This is a must see destination when visiting Cunnamulla.  Stop in and ask our friendly staff where you can also visit the Art Gallery and historical display, all in the one centre.
