2010 Community of the Year - NSW Regional Achievement Awards
Cumnock is a tranquil rural village located about 4 hours west of Sydney. Cumnock is centrally located between the wineries surrounding Orange, the Dubbo Zoo, Parkes Radio Telescope and the Wellington Caves, so “call in for a cuppa” or lunch at the Cumnock Café and enjoy the historical ambience of one of the smallest towns in the shire.
Cumnock is home of the famous Animals on Bikes and you will spot them around the streets. The wide main street is flanked by vibrantly painted telegraph poles and the large shady park has a BBQ and picnic tables, plus a children’s playground with a super-heroes mural.
Cumnock is a keen sporting community where Wallaby legends like John White, Tim Gavin and Ross Reynolds were born. The public swimming pool, tennis courts, bowling club, golf course, squash court, bike tracks, cricket and football oval, showground and pony club are all popular facilities. The Playgroup, Pre-school and Public School are well attended.
Cumnock residents have also inspired the "Animals on Bikes" sculpture trail - over 100 amusing creations along the drive from Molong to Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo.
