Cobb & Co - Self Drive Historical Tour
One of only three original Australian restored
Cobb & Co coaches sits proudly in the
Bathurst Visitor Information Centre.
The distinctive red and gold paint-work or livery indicates that this was a New South Wales coach.
Bathurst became the site of Cobb & Co's headquarters in 1862, under the management of a local boy, James Rutherford.
The first coach arrived at Bathurst, from Victoria, with Rutherford at the reins.
The company's principal coach construction factory operated behind Bathurst's Black Bull Inn until 1881
(now part of the Bathurst Shopping Centre, at the corner of Bentinck and Howick Sts.)
The historical trail takes in the Black Bull Inn, the original passenger pick-up site, the original booking office site, the Anglican Cathedral, which has a memorial to Rutherford, his first home, the mansion he later built and the cemetery where he lies.
Take the self drive historical tour celebrating 150 years of Cobb & Co passenger service in Australia.

Taking approximately 2 hours, you will see many sites connected to the Cobb & Co Coaching company and its manager, James Rutherford.
You start your tour at the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre (see details above).
