Cobar Attractions

Cobar is a friendly rural town in central New South Wales with plenty to offer visitors who enjoy history and the rugged beauty of the outback.

One must-see is the Great Cobar Heritage Centre with its collection of interesting exhibits focusing on the town's mining, agricultural and Aboriginal history. The Centre is the starting point for the Cobar Heritage Walk, which takes in many grand old buildings and other points of interest such as the Cobar Miners' Heritage Park.

Many historical reminders of Cobar's rich mining tradition can be found throughout the region. The Great Cobar Open Cut was originally a 150 metre deep open-cut mine. The Great Cobar Copper Mine, which was founded in 1870, was one of the world's largest mining and processing operations in its day.

Just a few kilometres east of Cobar, visitors can get a panoramic view of the town and the New Cobar Open Cut Gold Mine at Fort Bourke Hill.

As our name suggests, the Cobar Central Motor Inn is located close to all of the amenities that Cobar has to offer, including the neighbouring Cobar Bowling and Golf Club with its excellent restaurant and conference facilities.

Bring your golf clubs and play a round on the irrigated grass fairways and greens of the 18-hole course, populated with abundant bird life. The club also supports two beautifully maintained bowling greens. Enjoy some genuine outback mateship and hospitality at the club.
