Cunnamulla, meaning “long stretch of water”, gets its name from the picturesque Warrego River which meanders past the town and is a popular spot for fishing and water sports.
Cunnamulla is located in the Shire of Paroo which also includes the towns of Yowah, Eulo and Wyandra. The shire has a vast cultural diversity within its vibrant rural communities and has a population of approximately 2600, but covers an area of 47,714 square kilometres. The Paroo Shire has an ever changing landscape, from the open Mitchell Grass flood plains in the east to the Moriarty Ranges, the opal fields and the Mulga Lands to the west. It is an area rich in history, ecosystems, and flora and fauna. The shire is highly regarded by birdwatchers as the diverse ecosystems lend themselves to ideal habitats for many species.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Paroo Shire Hall on Sunday 18th October with one of Australia’s most celebrated singer-songwriters Shellie Morris and critically acclaimed blues and roots duo Hussy Hicks.
