Locals Special announced for the Cunnamulla Fella Festival

Organisers of the famous Cunnamulla Fella Festival have announced a special pricing offer for LOCALS, to ensure everyone can enjoy 2019’s event!

“In light of the ongoing drought, and to ensure all locals can have a chance to come and be a part of what is a huge festival program this year (2019), a Mayor’s Discretionary Discount has been announced, which is available on proof of local residency,” said Mayor Lindsay Godfrey.

“While Cunnamulla is famous around the country for its warm welcome, for its characters and for our annual Festival, we need to ensure our locals are supported, and this is why we have announced this special discount. We know the drought has affected many in our community, and so we will work together to ensure everyone in our area can come and celebrate at the Festival,” he said.

Locals need to ask for Barb Mason at the Visitor Information Centre on Jane Street, or email visitor@paroo.qld.gov.au or call 0746558470 to access to offer.
