The Cobb Highway is a state highway in the western Riverina and the far western regions of New South Wales, with a short section in Victoria, Australia. Initially an amalgam of stock routes, the 571-kilometre (355 mi) Cobb Highway was proclaimed during the late 1930s, initially extending from the New South Wales and Victorian border north to Wilcannia, White Cliffs and Tibooburra to Warri Gate at the New South Wales and Queensland border. It 1945, the highway was truncated to its current length and named in 1947 in honour of Cobb and Co, a company which ran a network of stagecoaches in inland Australia in the latter half of the 19th century and early in the 20th century.

  • The Cobb Highway is a state highway in the western Riverina and the far western regions of New South Wales, with a short section in Victoria, Australia. Initially an amalgam of stock routes, the 571-kilometre (355 mi) Cobb Highway was proclaimed during the late 1930s, initially extending from the New South Wales and Victorian border north to Wilcannia, White Cliffs and Tibooburra to Warri Gate at the New South Wales and Queensland border. It 1945, the highway was truncated to its current length and named in 1947 in honour of Cobb and Co, a company which ran a network of stagecoaches in inland Australia in the latter half of the 19th century and early in the 20th century. The highway follows an old coach route through the Riverina, connecting the Murray, Murrumbidgee and Lachlan rivers, and across the intervening plains to the Darling River at Wilcannia. The Cobb also connects the Barrier, Mid-Western, Sturt, and Riverina highways. The Cobb carries the State Highway B75 shield for its entire length, the majority of which is a sealed single carriageway as far north as 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) north of Ivanhoe; and thereafter, gravel.

  • La Cobb Highway () est un axe routier, long de 598 km, de direction nord-sud, situé en Nouvelle-Galles du Sud, en Australie. Il commence au nord à sa jonction avec la Barrier Highway près de Wilcannia et se dirige vers le sud à travers les localités d'Ivanhoe, Booligal, Hay et Deniliquin. Il se termine à Moama où la route traverse le fleuve Murray qui sert de frontière entre la Nouvelle-Galles du Sud et le Victoria et continue vers le sud comme Northern Highway. La route a été nommée d'après la Cobb & Co, une société qui exploitait un réseau de diligences à l'intérieur de l'Australie dans la seconde moitié du XIXe et au début du XXe siècle. La route emprunte ainsi une ancienne piste à diligence à travers la Riverina, reliant le Murray, la Murrumbidgee et la Lachlan puis jusqu'à la rivière Darling à Wilcannia. La route est goudronnée jusqu'à 10 km au nord d'Ivanhoe. Elle est l'une des routes les moins utilisées de Nouvelle-Galles du Sud. La route traverse divers types de paysages, avec au sud les zones agricoles denses de la Riverina, pour aller vers des terres de pâturage et de semi-désert dans sa partie centrale et nordique. La limite de vitesse est de 100 km/h sauf pour trois sections où la limite est de 110 km/h, à savoir: 40 km au nord de Deniliquin jusqu'à Hay, de Hay jusqu'à quelques kilomètres au nord de Booligal et du sud de Mossgiel à Ivanhoe.
