Cobb & Co Festival
Surat | August 15, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - August 25, 2019
Travel in a horse drawn carriage, see a bullock wagon in action, celebrate a piece of Australia’s unique outback history – just don’t tangle with the bushrangers!
Come to the Maranoa to celebrate the last run of the Cobb & Co Coach service in Australia along the Cobb & Co Way. Book a seat on the horse-drawn coach for a section of the historic route, bring a horse and team up with the trail ride, or join the celebration in event transport – this family friendly event retraces the 76 kilometre route of Cobb & Co Mail Service No. 177.
Celebrations include coach rides around Yuleba and Surat, a bush dance, markets, an open air concert, live theatre, an exhibition by national award winning artist Kathy Ellem, classic Australian movies showing in Surat’s heritage listed Shire Hall, and the list goes on…
Come along in period dress and join in the celebration of Australia’s history.
Tickets are required for most events. Keep an eye on their Cobb & Co Festival Facebook page for when bookings open.
And beware the bushrangers!
