Located 598 km west of Dalby, Cunnamulla is the administrative centre for the vast Paroo Shire which covers 47 617 sq. km of South-West Queensland.
The area around Cunnamulla was first settled in the late 1840s after it had been explored by Sir Thomas Mitchell,
The township of Cunnamulla was created by Cobb & Co. on 3rd September 1879 the first coach came through from Bourke. Cunnamulla was one of many settlements which grew up in South-West Queensland as a result of the activities of Cobb & Co.

The 197km run to Cunnamulla passes a few stores, pubs, homesteads and railway sidings. Nearby diversions could be to Yowah opal fields and the township of Eulo, on the great Paroo River just 67km west of Cunnamulla on the Bulloo Developmental Road.

Cunnamulla also lies on the Warrego River and is 120km north of the NSW border. The town was gazetted in 1868 and a Cobb & Co coaching station was based here.
