Cunnamulla originated as a settlement in the 1860’s at the intersection of two major stock routes, one running from east to west from St George to Thargomindah and the other north to south from Charleville to Bourke.
The name of the town is derived from an Aboriginal term meaning “long stretch of water” referring to the Warrego River, which passes through the town.
