1. Cullen Bullen welcome sign
2. General store
3. House on the outskirts of town
4. Royal Hotel
5. Opposition to mining
While Cullen Bullen was originally a wayside point on the road to Mudgee and blossomed further when gold was discovered further up the road it really came into it's own with the arrival of the railway which made coal mining in the region viable. Ever since it has been sustained by mining with varying degrees of success.
Today there is a move to expand the open cut mine in the region but there is opposition to this, a least by some of the locals.
The townsfolk may prize their lifestyle but for the visitor there doesn't appear to be an awful lot to see and do in Cullen Bullen.
