Cobaw was once part of 'Theden Run' (or 'The Den'), one of the first settled properties of the Macedon Ranges Victoria, comprising many thousand acres, and running large flocks of sheep.
While still operating as a fine wool growing enterprise, today, Cobaw is also home to Cobaw Sporting, which provides sporting clay and field hunting opportunities for both the novice and more experienced shot.
Cobaw Sporting also provides very popular Partridge hunting in Victoria during the winter months, and takes clients to Yorkshire for the best driven shooting trip in the world.
A comprehensive environmental plan was put into action in 2000. This twenty year plan has the objectives of improving water quality, and providing wildlife corridors throughout the property. 90 kilometers of tree seeding, and over 8,500 seedlings have been planted along the waterways, and over the granite rises. Significant environmental advances have been made as evidenced by the native birds and other animals attracted to the property.
Cobaw has worked closely with Greening Australia, DSE, Tree Project, Field and Game Australia, Green Fleet, and the Macedon Rangers SC to achieve these remarkable results.
Cobaw Sporting is the first shoot in Australia to mandate the use of fibre wad cartridges. This action has removed plastic wads from our environment, further enhanced our environmental credentials, and strengthened our Environmental Management Plan.
Cobaw Cooking specialises in providing country home style hospitality during your visit to Cobaw Sporting. Home baked goodies are offered with your tea and coffee upon arrival at the Shoot Room.
Following your shoot, enjoy a drink and then some platter appetizers before taking a seat at the table.
Locally grown meat and seasonal vegetables are the essential ingredients for your lunch and when available, Cobaw game is offered during the season.
There are good local wines that may enhance the enjoyment of your meal.
