Who was Slim Dusty’s Cunnamulla Fella? This is the perfect time to find a local and ask, as the Festival of Small Halls hooks up with cowboys, stockmen, bull-riders lnand shearers for the launch of the annual Cunnamulla Fella Festival. Cunnamulla is a town with a typically Australian industry – kangaroo hunting – as part of its make up, settled along the Warrego River, and has the honour of being home to a huge colony of pelicans just outside of town. Stopping in the late afternoon on the way into town, visitors might see polocrosse players kicking up dust on horseback, silhouetted against a sky aflame with the last orange of a sunset.
