Features

  • Historic well
  • Roadside site
  • Sits across the road from historic mine site
Cobb & Co were an innovative coach transport company, established in 1853 in response to the quickly growing need for transport of passengers, gold and mail during the 19th century gold rush. Rapidly expanding to become one of the most successful companies of its kind, Cobb & Co's remaining stables, couch houses and pioneering routes stand as a proud testament to the industry which once dominated the roads of the Victorian Goldfields. 

The 19th century stone-lined well in Kingower was used by Cobb & Co for their animals travelling along this route. The well is 11 feet in diameter and at least 10 feet deep, and stands alongside Kingower-Brenanah Road at the Western Road turnoff. The well is marked by a roadside sign, which also points to the Union Reef Mine site on the opposite side of the road to the well.
