Relive this bygone era in Yuleba by retracing the last Cobb & Co run…
Yuleba features prominently in the history of the Cobb & Co Coach Service with the last horse drawn coach in Australia running from Surat to Yuleba in 1924. The Cobb and Co Way has been developed by locals and is a great way to learn about this remarkable service.
Visitors can relive this bygone era by retracing the last Cobb & Co run and viewing sites of local significance such as the Cobb & Co Mural, Aboriginal Native Wells and Cobb & Co Corduroys.
Yuleba was settled in 1865 and was originally located on Yuleba Creek, 11 kilometres south east of its current location. In 1879, the town was moved to the railway crossing, officially known as Baltinglass. In 1901, Baltinglass was renamed to Yuleba, whilst the original location of the township took the official name ‘Old Yuleba’. Residents lived at both sites until a flood in 1910 convinced them to move to the new location.
Found on the eastern border of the Maranoa region 60 kilometres east of Roma, Yuleba features the largest white cypress pine forest in the southern hemisphere.
The town is a service centre for the rural sector and gas industry. It has a service station, hotel/motel, general store, post office, sporting and recreational facilities and a primary school.
Just five kilometres south-east of Yuleba is scenic Judd’s Lagoon which features some magnificent flora and fauna. The locals also know it as a good fishing spot. This scenic lagoon and wetlands provide a tranquil natural backdrop for visitors wishing to bush camp and enjoy the amazing birdlife.
