The latest edition of The Cobar Weekly’s In Cobar tourist and information magazine has hit the streets.
In Cobar magazine editor Tahnee Tomek said the whole magazine has had a refresh.
“This year’s edition features a variety of new photos, including some great images from this year’s Festival of the Miner’s Ghost which look fantastic in full colour,” she said.
“Each year we profile locals and have them talk about what they love about life in Cobar and this year’s magazine includes the stories from Angela Shepherd, Lisa Travis and Ben Hewlett about why they call Cobar home.
“We’ve also gone through our archives and included some historical photos of local mining operations,” Mrs Tomek said.
She said the magazine aims to promote Cobar and provide useful information to tourists and residents.
“There’s lots of contact information for local community groups, sporting organisations and local tradesmen so people who are new to town can use the magazine as a handy guide,” Mrs Tomek said.
She said in the past the magazine has been distributed in regional tourism information centres including Dubbo, Orange, Bathurst, Bourke, Broken Hill, Hillston and more.
“Because The Cobar Weekly is a not-for-profit organisation we rely on staff members and locals to help distribute the magazine in their own time to tourism and information centres around the region.
“We also encourage local businesses to hand out copies to visitors and stop and have a chat to them – everyone can be a tourism ambassador in Cobar.”
The magazine is the sixth full colour edition which has been produced by The Cobar Weekly in recent years.
“Lots of local advertisers have come on board to support the magazine once again, which allows it to be distributed for free,” Mrs Tomek said.
