A town under the Warrumbungle Shire local government area in the central western region of New South Wales, Coolah is located 370 kilometres northwest of Sydney, 136 kilometres northeast of Dubbo and 80 kilometres northwest of Merriwa. The area was first inhabited by pastoralists around 1840, and its post office opened in January 1849. The village is home to the site of the famous Black Stump Saloon, formerly Black Stump Inn, which was believed to be an important landmark used by travellers to gauge their journeys until it was destroyed by a fire in 1908. With this, Coolah became one of the towns that claim to be the town where the colloquial saying “beyond the black stump” is said to have started. The expression is used to mean “beyond the limits of civilisation”. The historical location is now marked by a replica stump and a rest area with picnic shelters, electric barbeque facilities and flushing toilets. Other places of interest include the Coolah Gold Course, Cunningham Caravan Park, Queensborough Park, Coolah Tops National Park and Weetalibah Nature Reserve.
