Caravaners Steve and Berice Eather from Narrabri said they purposely stopped in Cobar last week because they knew the museum was full of useful information.
The Eathers were travelling from their home in Narrabri to the Northern Territory where they plan to visit family.
Five years ago the couple went on their last “big trip” and stopped over in Cobar “for a look around”.
“We were quiet impressed by the lookout and the museum.
“We didn’t have a caravan five years ago and we stayed at the caravan park in a cabin which was quiet good,” Mr Eather said.
This time around the couple said they are taking advantage of free camping sites where they can and collecting lots of useful tourist information along the way.
The couple said they haven’t heard anything negative about Cobar in the caravanning circles and personally found the people of Cobar to be very friendly.
Other caravaners who were parked at The Newey last week said they chose to stay in Cobar because Cobar had good recommendations from a website they had visited.
Three couples who camped at The Newey last week said they stayed an extra night than originally planned in order to let everything dry out from last week’s rain and were looking forward to spending their extra day down the street.
Council’s tourism officer John Martin said the caravanning community has been growing for the last 10 years with sales of caravans increasing by 10-18 per cent.
He said Cobar is being actively promoted to the caravanning and camping market.
