Cobar hotels map
Cobar intro. The diverse bio-regions surrounding the New South Wales town of Cobar support rich and highly significant examples aboriginal rock art, confirming the ancient Ngiyampaa/Wanagaapuwan traditions of the area’s indigenous peoples. Set in the state’s central western zone, on the edge of the outback, the town was named after the aboriginal term for ‘red earth’, referring to the ochre used in body paint for many millennia. Copper mines in the area were discovered by immigrants, provoking a copper rush, establishing the town in the late 19th century. Nowadays, with subsequent discoveries of gold, silver, lead and zinc, the town is still enjoying a mining boom which also attracts many tourists fascinated by visits to mine sites and open cut pits. Cobar hotels receive a boost every year in October, with the Festival of the Miner’s Ghosts celebrating the spirits of the original miners, who risked their lives opening the seams. The town also benefits from its location on the crossroads of the Barrier and Kidman highways, with tourists passing through often staying for several days.
