Cobar Holidays Overview


An ideal place to experience the Outback life, Cobar is located at the crossroads of the Kidman Way and the Barrier Highway. Be inspired by the unique semi-arid landscape. A strong community, you will enjoy speaking with the friendly people. Become immersed in the wealth of history from the indigenous, mining and agriculture in this region.
A visit to Cobar is to discover the rich mining history in this Outback town. The regionís prosperity was built on a thriving mining industry dealing in copper, lead, silver, zinc and gold. A major tourism destination, there are many attractions and activities to enjoy. There is an abundance of wildlife in the area and over 200 bird species for lovers of nature.
In 1870, a Copper Lode was discovered in Cobar. This was linked to the forces of drought and flood that dominate the Western Plains. Charles Campbell, Thomas Hartman and George Gibb were working in the Bourke district when widespread flooding forced them south in 1969. As they followed the path that local aboriginals used between watering halls, guided by two aboriginals they discovered blue/green streaks in the clay bank of the waterhole. Later testing of the samples showed that they were Copper.
