The Great Cobar Museum and Information Centre


The Great Cobar Museum is located in the former offices of the Great Cobar Copper Mine. Visitors can explore the deep history of Cobar in the all-new exhibitions while admiring the restored beauty of the grand old building. The exhibitions tell a story of mining, people, pastoralism, community and hard work that starts thousands of years ago and leads to the near past. There is something for everyone to marvel at, whether it is the gold gleaming in the rock, or the evidence of hard work put in by miners, farmers and womenfolk. There are tales of a bushranger turned respectable businessman, of the ingenuity of the indigenous people, and of the fun everyone had when the hard work was done for the day. After going through the museum, visitors can buy a souvenir in the well-stocked shop. The friendly staff will provide maps and information about the area and your next destination.
