Admire the stars in this idyllic town

When you live in a city, you hardly have the opportunity to look up at the sky and see the stars due to the pollution and the artificial lights. That is why you should consider visiting Coonabarabran for a fresh change. Not only is it beautiful at night, but there are also many sights to see in the daytime.
