Heritage Study Reports

Warrumbungle Shire Council is made up of the amalgamation of the former Coolah Shire Council and Coonabarabran Shire Council. Studies have been completed on both former Shires and are listed on this page.

The Coolah Shire Heritage Study Report was finalised in April 2005 and the Coonabarabran Shire Thematic History Report and Coonabarabran Shire Heritage Study Report were finalised in July 2006. In February 2014 the Baradine Heritage Main Street Study was finalised to help identify projects within the Main Street precinct that can be undertaken to ensure the town is at its best for the sesquicentenary in 2015.
