Great Cobar Heritage Centre

Overview

The handsome red brick building at the eastern entrance to town is the Great Cobar Heritage Centre. It houses the visitor Information Centre and the museum. On the site of the Great Cobar Copper Mine, once one of the mightiest industries in Australia, its detailed and engaging displays tell the stories of Cobar from the Indigenous perspective through the foundation of the town and its on-going mining and pastoral industries. What will be your favourite display? The battered and beloved 1926 Pontiac, the moving Far West Children's health scheme, the interactive mine displays - or the wonderful view from the balcony?
