Coolah is the next town encounted when traveling to (or from) Binnaway to Dunedoo. Coolah is an attractive town that has a few things going for it. Firstly it is near the infamous ‘black stump’, has some attractive buildings and a Vietnam War Hero. Coolah also services a rich rural base.
The Coolah area was first settled by pastoralists around 1840.
The Cadbury Company introduced a citrus-flavored energy drink in the US in 2006 named Coolah Energy. The text on the packaging for this product refers to the Australian Cadbury Schweppes product Solo as its inspiration, along with the lifestyle of the inhabitants of the town of Coolah.
The text from the Coolah Energy reads;
‘Coolah is a village in Australia where everyone's got a little more energy. They paint. Play rugby. Sing. Throw darts. Dance. And they drink Solo, the beverage with a lemon tang that was the inspiration for Coolah Energy. We added Australian Boronia, Taurine and B-Vitamins to make this one bonzer drink. So pop the top and give it a bash! Welcome to the land of Coolah.’
While Coolah is off the main roads there also other towns in the area, and a visit is recommended.
