The Road Ahead : April May 2008
The spirit of the pioneers is highlighted by a number of tours organised by Stephanie Mills Gallery in Cunnamulla. Other attractions waiting to be explored just west of Cunnamulla include the 'Yowah Nuts' of Yowah -- ironstone rocks that when "cracked" contain fine opal. There's even a free opal fossicking area at Yowah, with cutting and polishing services available locally. On the way to Yowah, stop at the Eulo Mud Baths and take in the Eulo Date Farm and Winery. These are some of the many attractions in the Cunnamulla area. GETTING THERE Cunnamulla is around 835 km west of Brisbane via Toowoomba and St George.
