Embrace the colourful tranquillity of Cumnock – rich in sporting, rural and community culture.One of the smallest settlements in Cabonne, Cumnock is a tranquil rural village with a typical wide main street flanked by vibrantly painted telegraph poles – “The Happy Poles of Cumnock”.

The ‘Animals on Bikes – Paddock Sculptures’ on Obley Road are also an artistic drawcard for the town. The collection is a 120 kilometre trail of paddock art sculptures displaying 111 two metre high structures (and some smaller letterboxes) on the back road from Molong to Cumnock to Yeoval to Dubbo Zoo. The sculptures have been created by local farmers, farmers wives, men’s sheds, sculptors, preschool kids, and playgroup mums – anyone with an artistic flair!


A large shady park with a barbecue, picnic tables and a children’s playground with a super hero mural completes the ‘family friendly’ atmosphere of the town. Stroll past the Old Court House Building and the Old Amaroo Shire Council Building before heading in for a coffee break at the Information Centre located within the Cumnock General Store.
