Major industries of the area are wool, pig and kangaroo hunting, and the hospitality industry.Cunnamulla's indigenous community suffers from a high level of domestic violence according to a report of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women’s Task Force on Violence.HistoryThe area's first European explorer was Thomas Mitchell who passed through the region in 1846. A settlement arose here because there was a reliable waterhole where two major stock routes intersected. The town itself came into being in the late 19th century as a coach stop for Cobb and Co coaches. A town survey was conducted in 1868, the same year a courthouse was built. A railway to the town was completed in 1899. Cunnamulla Post Office opened on 1 March 1868.
