Cunnamulla (YCMU), QLD

Cunnamulla Aerodrome (YCMU) is located in south-west Queensland just 8km from the main township and the banks of the Warrego River. Sit back and enjoy a bit of fishing, a bush picnic, or even a soak in an outback bath tub! Go on, mark this little hidden gem on your next expedition.


Private flights and charters are welcome at the airport (Rex offers flights from Brisbane on Wednesday and Sunday). The
strips are clay surface with clear approach in both directions. There is plenty of wildlife, so be aware of bird and other animal hazards. Permission is required to use the aerodrome – call ahead so they can check the condition of the strip before you arrive.


Hire a kayak and paddle down the picturesque Warrego river, home to beautiful native birdlife. Or if you’re looking for something more adrenaline-pumping, rent a sandboard and race down some of the best natural sand hills in Australia. Plan your visit to coincide with the annual Cunnamulla Fella Roundup, a vibrant country festival packed with live music, barrel racing and a rodeo!


Book in for a campfire dinner and show (Sundays only) with the Club Boutique Hotel and be entertained by larrikin tales and music. Make sure you try some of their craft beers that pay homage to the personalities of iconic outback characters. The Gidgee Bean Café is your go-to for your morning cuppa and a good feed.


Set up camp close to town at the Cunnamulla Tourist Park in a wellappointed cabin. For a truly unique experience, head out of town and stay a few nights at Charlotte Plains – a family-owned sheep station and camp ground – and soak up the classic outback scenery in one of their Artesian Bore Baths.
