Cobargo - Cities, Towns and Localities
Cobargo was once known as Wattle town because of the wattle bark industry that had sprung up in the region due to the abundance of the plant in the area. The trees were stripped of their bark then it was sent to Sydney and Melbourne for use in the tanning industry, the industry continued on until 1964 when more efficient method of producing these tannins was invented.


Just 386 km south of Sydney, situated on the Princes Highway north of Bega, Cobargo is a bustling rural community, with it’s array of shops and amenities that specialise in such things as pottery, handcrafted woodwork, antiques, jewellery and assorted country arts and crafts. You can also enjoy great homemade country baking at a variety of food outlets, including restaurants and cafes. One of the cafes is situated inside an old red rattler train from Sydney's rail network, tastefully restored to offer an unusual commuting experience.

In July, Cobargo has it’s traditional craft day, where local crafts people share their self-sufficient traditions dating back to the 1860’s.

You can make Cobargo your base, by which you can visit the surrounding townships and countryside. To the east is Bermagui, an angler’s delight. To the north just 19 km away is Tilba, a historic gold mining, dairy and cheese town. To the immediate south is Quaama and further is Bega.
