Cunnamulla in outback Queensland is known for its natural beauty, outback hospitality, celebrations and as the place where “the handshake’s stronger and the smile lasts longer”. Once a town where bullock teams passed through and shearers spilled from bar windows, today Cunnamulla in outback Queensland is known for its natural beauty, outback hospitality, celebrations and as the place where “the handshake’s stronger and the smile lasts longer”.

So, who is the Cunnamulla Fella? He is the essence of the outback immortalised in a song by Stan Coster, and  sung by the legendary Slim Dusty, who spent considerable time in the outback town. Paying tribute to the ‘fellas of the region who forged the way – the shearers, ringers, bushman, riders and more - the Cunnamulla Fella statute stands tall in the main street, a fitting epicentre for this iconic Queensland town.
