Cobar, NSWMarch 29, 2019 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 28 °C
We arrived at Cobar in the mid afternoon. Right at the start of the town was a huge wall to let us know where we were. Since we had not yet had lunch we decided we would make use of the picnic tables. We set up and were just about to eat when the rain started.
Not just a puny little shower but the kind that can wet you to the core on 30 seconds. We had to move back to the second table to avoid getting very wet. The rain lasted around 20 minutes, lunch was done so we went for a quick look around.
The first stop was the mining and heritage display by the side of the road. Cobar was, and still is a copper mining town. The display shows the old shaft head frame and the winder system. A little away are some other interesting displays and information. Later on our way we went to the lookout to check out a view of one of the current mines.Read more
