Why not step back in time and visit the Coonamble Museum, which outlines the history of Coonamble and its community. Browse the old photos, wares and stables reading tales of an era gone by in the Coonamble district. The Museum is the former police barracks which was built in 1886. The original brick horse stables have been retained in original form with stalls and feed boxes and are one of only two left in NSW. Tour groups, Schools and functions are also welcome by appointment.
