Cobar Things to Do: 21 reviews and 57 photos
Displays in the grounds around the main Museum include the Far West Health Carriage which was moved around the Far West by railway, a Robey portable steam engine and some interesting displays of early mining equipment. You can see the Great Cobar Open Cut via a walkway from the museum.
It explains how in the 19th century it was all handworked and all underground until the early 1900s when mechanization commenced.
This is all outlined in pic 2 and 3 where you can also learn that 120 have died working the ore bodies in this town and that the name of the sculpture is, simply, The Cobar Miner.
