Cobargo History
The area was originally populated by the indigenous people of the Yuin Nation.
By the 1830s WD Tarlinton and the Imlay brothers had identified land for pastoral development.
By the 1860s Cobargo was known as “The Junction” as it was located at the junction of the Narira and Bredbatoura Creeks
Today Cobargo is a thriving village founded on strong traditions, a long history of hard work and an enduring community spirit.
