Cunnamulla: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Cunnamulla War Memorial Fountain


An inscription is all that identifies an ornately carved water fountain as a war memorial, standing in a traffic island at a five-way intersection in the outback town centre of Cunnamulla.

Paroo Shire decided on a war memorial fountain in 1920. The process of selecting and installing a monument took some time. Despite the submission of memorial designs from AL Petrie and sons in Brisbane, the council and the Diggers Racing Club collaborated on the purchase of a stock item, and had it railed to Cunnamulla - an identical fountain can be found in NSW. It was installed prior to the Armistice Day race carnival in 1926 and unveiled on ANZAC Day 1927.

Fountains were an unusual choice in Queensland. It's thought that the symbology of water, a scarce commodity in outback Queensland, may have been considered a suitable 'sacrifice'.

The centrepiece comprises four basins decreasing in scale as they peak. Gargoyles' heads, winged griffins holding shields bearing emus and kangaroos, leaf-like motifs and scrollwork add to the elaborate classic design. The figure of a little boy stands at the very top.

The fountain doesn't bear names of the fallen: they're found on an honour board in the Civic Centre.

Cunnamulla Fella


The Cunnamulla Fella is a song written by Stan Coster and sung by Slim Dusty. He is an iconic Australian Bush character. The town of Cunnamulla has erected a statue of the Cunnamulla Fella as a tribute to Stan and Slim and to the 'ringers' of the bush. The statue is double life size bronze. It was created by sculptor Archie Sinclair from a drawing by Mike Nicholas. The statue is located in front of the Paroo Shire Hall in Cunnamulla gazing across the centre of the town.

The Cunnamulla Fella Statue was unveiled on November 18, 2005 by Russel, Jane and Tracy Coster and Ann Kinkpatrick.

Joseph Wells goes down in history as the last man, in Queensland, to receive the death penalty for his particular crime.
