Coolah is located in Central New South Wales, one hour south east of Coonabarabran and is the gateway to Coolah Tops National Park.
Coolah firmly stakes its claim as being the home of the original ‘Black Stump’. It was here that the colloquial saying ‘beyond the black stump’, meaning ‘beyond the limits of settlement or civilisation’ is said to have originated. A replica Black Stump and rest area has been established nine kilometres from Coolah to mark its historic location.
Coolah is situated on the picturesque Coolaburragundy River and nestled in a valley of the Liverpool Range. The town is surrounded by undulating hills and fertile river flats and is an attractive service town for the surrounding agricultural district. While in Coolah visit the Pandora Gallery which is Coolah’s Visitor Centre and has many different displays on view throughout the year.
Coolah is located in the Warrumbungle Shire region.
