Fort Bourke Hill Lookout and Open Cut Mine

Fort Bourke Hill stands to the east of the Cobar township and rising to 300 metres above sea level, it affords the visitor a wonderful vista of the Cobar landscape. See the open pit and entrance to the underground mine from a well constructed viewing platform.

Fort Bourke Hill is the historical site of Cobar's first gold Mine, the New Cobar Gold Mine. Peak Gold Mines operates an underground mine at Fort Bourke.

Limited access to the lookout is possible by contacting the Cobar Heritage Centre on (02) 6836 2448.
