The soil is red, there are pastoral industries, and lots of "Grey Nomads" passing through or stopping overnight in the town.
Cobar is quite busy with passing traffic.
From Warren to Cobar is 132kms of outback scenery, and then on the other side of town, where we head to Broken Hill, we travel 456kms, with only Wilcannia and a one horse town for the length of the drive.
Cobar is a nice town, with plenty of shops, accommodation and places of interest to visit.
