Coolah Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 86 photos

Thankyou to the New South Wales Police force for asking permission to use this photo for the front cover of their monthly magazine.

Coolah is the gateway to Coolah Tops National Park, an area where there is a chance to find rare flora and to see wildlife.

Coolah also is believed to be the home of the original Black Stump.
A replica Black Stump and Rest Area is 9 kms from Coolah, on the Coolah - Coonabarabran/Gunnedah road.

The town is situated in a beautiful valley of the Liverpool Range, surrounded by undulating hills and fertile river flats, I find it a very pretty area.

The town has a population of approx 1000 people, and is located on a road used as a short-cut from Dubbo to Gunnedah.

We had a good meal, a good sleep and enjoyed the beautiful scenery at the Coolah National Park yesterday.

2012 - Now it is time to move onto GUNNEDAH the Koala capital of Australia.

2015 Road trip - Next town is DUNEDOO
