Cunnamulla, Queensland

Cunnamulla is about 750km West of Brisbane, so another outback town with a population of about 1,200 people.  We stayed a night and looked around and had a meal at the RSL Club - Returned Serviceman's Club.
The weir in the second photo, Warrego River in the first one. The remainder speak for themselves.
We were told there were so many kangaroos in and around this area that if the grass wasn't green in the scrub that so many kangaroos gathered on the towns oval for a feed of green grass with no standing room for people.

  5. A very beautiful town! It looks quiet and relaxing, ideal for spending some days far from the chaos of the cities.

  6. I don't think I have ever seen a fountain War Memorial before. It is a really nice change.
    I like 'Weary' and his dog too.

  8. There must be a sense of isolation living in one of these outback towns.

    1. There must be but the people who live there probably don’t look at it that way because they have never lived anywhere else.

  9. Poor old Weary. Imagine the evaporation rate in the fountain.

  10. I just finished watching a 2010 Australian movie, "Red Hill". Essentially a "Western" plot, with an evil police inspector, a falsely accused native, a young constable who gets into all kinds of problem. But the little town in the movie reminded me of many of the outback towns you have shown us. Another fine post.

  11. Beautiful river view. A very nice little town. Beautiful fountain memorial and great sculpture of Weary.

  12. I was born in a small outback town, so I have feelings for this kind of town everywhere in the world.
    The sculpture of the Weary is rather unique. Never seen anything like that before. I have seen memorials of various types, but no sculpture dedicated to the common, weary human.

    1. You would then appreciate outback towns as I do as the people are often the backbone of our country.
      Interesting that sculpture of the weary human.
