Community Recognition Statement - Cobar Heritage Centre
Community Recognition Statement delivered in the Fifty-Seventh Parliament of New South Wales by the Member for Barwon Roy Butler on 24 September 2019.
The nationally known Cobar Heritage Centre has just celebrated its 50th Birthday.
The Cobar Heritage Centre has been the pillar of the tourist industry in Cobar for many decades. In the early nineties more than 3,000 visitors' wandered through the many exhibits ranging from living in the early settler period to mining and farming equipment and the amazing photographic history of Cobar and surrounding areas. Move to present day where more than 25,000 visitors have explored the open cut mine and the Heritage Centre.
The Heritage Centre is now getting an upgrade to ensure the Heritage centre is there for another 100 years, as part of the upgrade the exhibitions will be reconfigured and new displays built. It is an exciting time for the Heritage centre and I look forward to the unveiling of the finished project and celebrate with the Cobar community.
