Coonabarabran – Open For Business
Despite the recent fires now is a great time to visit Coonabarabran. The countryside is showing miraculous regrowth and the iconic rock formations can be seen like never before. If you love the Warrumbungles then experience them without their petticoats on.
Tourist attractions like Crystal Kingdom and Pilliga Pottery, and further north the Sculptures in the Scrub are all open and ready for you. The 2013 Coonabarabran Show is taking entries and gearing up for another fantastic showcase of local arts,crafts, animals and of course sideshows and rides.
Or take a break with a change and come join BlazeAid and help restore fences and infrastructure to fire affected farms and pastures.
We are all still here smiling and would love to see you in Coonabarabran soon.
