Missed out


Cobbora which is just 15km on the main road west from Dunedoo was once the bigger town.  Today its all but gone while Dunedoo is ticking along nicely. It missed out on the railway back in 1910 and has been going downhill ever since.

Have a look at what's left over at 100 Towns.

  1. Not much left but perhaps even less soon. A friends F/book page has a petition to stop a mine at Cobbora.

    1. Oh no the dreaded mines again. Maybe the residents of this town might actually like to be bought up.

    2. I just looked up the web on this mine. It seems that it will involve building a rail link. Looks like Cobbora will get the railway line 100 years late.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
