Cobargo is a friendly village combines the skill and know-how of its past to create a brighter future.
The buildings that line Cobargo’s main street are the town’s originals, all restored to respect and showcase the history that built this community of farmers and artisans. This historic weatherboard community stretches out from the main street into the coastal hinterland that surrounds, and is only 3 hours to Canberra and 5 hours to Sydney.
The annual country show each February is a lively demonstration of the dairy industry, agriculture and rural fun that still drives Cobargo. A walk along the main street on any day of the week will connect you with creatives working with clay, jewels and beads, leather, wood, metal and a host of other materials.Good coffee, locally made treats, and a place in the sun rounds out the Cobargo experience.The town is also known for its annual folk festival, which always attracts international artists headed to the National Folk Festival in Canberra just a few weeks after.
There’s a life in Cobargo for everyone: whether it’s a fulfilling retirement, a country childhood for the kids, or a vison of self-sufficiency, with a median house price of $295,000 Cobargo real estate presents options in need of exploration.
Cobargo parents and carers are spoilt for choice when it comes to education. This country community has all the government and non-government choices of a metropolitan area, but generally speaking without the price tag. This rural – coastal environment enlivens and child’s education, and mixed with a dynamic local arts community Bega Valley children get a unique experience.
