King Togees Grave

Neilrex Road, Coolah NSW 2843
For those with a keen interest in Aboriginal history, the grave of King Togee is to be found 29 kilometres west of Coolah on the left-hand side of the Neilrex Road, just past the 'Langdon' homestead. There is a weather-worn sandstone headstone surrounded by four white posts with a sign overhead reading 'Togee King of the Butheroe Tribe'. King Togee was friendly with the early settlers but was speared to death by a young man named Cuttabush, who later became the king of a Coonabarabran sub-tribe.

Black Stump Rest Area

Black Stump Way (near Warrumbungles Way corner), Coolah NSW 2843
Coolah is one of several towns to claim bragging rights as the home of the legendary Black Stump. It was here that the colloquial saying ‘Beyond the Black Stump’, meaning ‘beyond the limits of civilisation,’ is said to have originated. Supporting Coolah’s claim is a document showing land boundaries declared by Governor Darling in 1826. This boundary line passes through the centre of a property known as ‘Black Stump Run’. The local Aboriginal Gamilaraay people were said to have called the area ‘Weetalibah-Wallangan’, meaning, ‘the place where the fire went out and left a burnt stump’. In 1905, a fire engulfed the Black Stump Wine Saloon which was the said to be the location of the original black stump. Today, a rest area and replica stump mark the historic location. It contains picnic shelters, an electric barbecue and flushing toilets.
