About Cobar Area

Cobar and Nyngan are located on the eastern edge of Outback NSW. Cobar is at the crossroads of the Barrier Highway and Kidman Way; Nyngan is at the junction of the Mitchell and Barrier highways. The Barrier Highway starts from Nyngan on its journey through Outback NSW to Broken Hill.

Remnants of Cobar's rich mining tradition can be seen in the old mines and at Fort Bourke Hill. When there's good rain, bird-watching at the Macquarie Marshes, 64 km north of Nyngan is a must-do experience. You can also wander along a self-guided heritage trail to see many fine 19th-century buildings around Nyngan.
