Coonamble Museum Under the Bridge

The town Coonamble has an unusual claim to fame in Australian History. Why not step back in the time and visit the ‘Museum under the Bridge’, which outlines the history of Coonamble and its Community.

Coonamble Museum Under the Bridge brings to life an era of hardship, hard work and triumph that exemplifies the early settlers of western NSW.

Built in 1886 and housing the former police barracks, this unique building and its eclectic collection of local artefacts is a must visit on the tourist trail.

The original brick horse stables, complete with stalls and feed boxes are one of the only two remaining in NSW. Browse the old photos, historic kitchenware, communications equipment, memorabilia, wares, and stables which illustrates tales of a bygone era in the Coonamble District. Find out about the history of the migrant population and the wonderful contribution they made to the growth of the area.

Exhibits change regularly so take the time to drop in and say hello. Tour groups, Schools and functions are also welcome by appointment.
