Cobb & Co Festival 2024

Celebrating the anniversary of the last horse-drawn mail coach service in Australia, the Cobb & Co Festival is a fast-moving, rattling and clattering event showcasing the history and heritage of the Australian bush.

It takes place in the small country towns of Surat & Yuleba and along the 76 kilometre dusty bush track in between.

Commencing on Friday 16th August 2024 with the Cobb & Co Long Table Dinner in Yuleba, the Festival involves bullocks, wagons, a horse-art exhibition, markets, beards, coach rides, gatherings of Cobb & Co descendants and friends where we want to hear your stories, an open-air concert and more…

On Saturday morning the horse hooves are drumming when the journey along the Cobb & Co Way begins as the coach collects the mail from the Surat Post Office, wheels past the Spirit of the River markets, and crosses the bridge to pick up speed on the open road.

Adding to the spectacle are the horse-drawn vehicles and trail riders who are also setting off to tackle the historic track.

On Saturday evening enjoy classic Australian movies at the Surat Recreation Oval, or join the bush poets in Yuleba for dinner and entertainment under the stars.

 

Little Cobb and Co Passenger

The Festival Finale comes with hustle and bustle on Sunday as a parade of carriages and riders enter Yuleba. Then the Cobb & Co coach delivers the mail to the Yuleba Post Office, completing the historic re-enactment and celebrating in Yuleba’s main street.

This event combines iconic images of horses, country characters and bushrangers that enable visitors to participate in the story of the development of the outback. It delivers an authentic experience with coach travel from a century ago, immersing everyone in a bush adventure.

Come along in period dress and join us in this unique celebration of Australia’s history.

Tickets are required for most events.


Keep an eye on Facebook’s Cobb & Co Festival for when bookings open. 

And beware the bushrangers!
