    Cunnamulla Museum

    August 7, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    A visit to Cunnamulla would not be complete without a visit to the museum. Also the info centre the time tunnel, artesian story, gallery and museum are worth a look.

    Arguably the highlight is the time tunnel elevator. Made to look like an old mine elevator this ride is quite well done. Clangs bangs and rumbles just like the real deal. The only thing missing is the start and stop sensation.

    In the tunnel are more interesting exhibits and a couple of old timer yarns. After looking around a nice coffee or tea and a biscuit.

    The only trouble visiting museums now is seeing items from our childhood on display.

    Cunnamulla and the Fella

    August 4, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    The Cunnamulla fella is a composite character immortalised by Slim Dusty and Stan Coster in song.

    Over the years the harsh outback created many colourful characters. Cunnamulla fella was just one example.

    A nearby Cafe has an interesting mural display. There are several pubs.

    The water Tower is similar to the one in Charleville.

    Not far away is the robber tree. In 1880 Joseph Wells robbed the bank and injured a storekeeper. He lost control of his horse and was captured here hiding in this tree.

    Sentenced to death the victims petitioned unsuccessfully for lenience. This however was not to be and he had the dubious fame of being the last man hanged in Queensland for robbery under arms.
