Gulargambone is a jewel in the Coonamble region’s crown, 47kms south of Coonamble along the banks of the Castlereagh River. Meaning ‘watering hole for many Galahs’ in the local Aboriginal language, it is famous for its corrugated tin Galahs, which act as welcoming signposts into town. It’s virtually impossible not to stop and capture these fantastic sculptures, created by local artists.
Despite being small, this town is bursting with personality. 'Gular' as the locals call it, brags the most spectacular street art scene, with vivid murals rivalling any Melbourne backstreet. So you don’t miss any of the key works from local and other renowned artists, community members, local organisations and school children, make sure to collect your Street Art map from Café 2828.
Café 2828, a vibrant café, is also a must-see when visiting. Originally created by community volunteers to help stimulate the town’s economy, it now boasts a café, gallery, craft and produce, function centre, second-hand book shop and plenty of information for visitors.
Brimming with character.
