Signpost commemorates the Sesqui-Centenary of Coonamble. The signpost gives the year of establishment of the citis named. 

In 1840 James Walker established the first run in the area; that being the 'Koonamble' station, settled by his agent. It soon became a watering place and campsite for passing stockmen. Land on either side of the river was reserved for a townsite in 1855. In 1859 it was surveyed and the first post office established. The township was gazetted in 1861 with the first courthouse and lock-up built in 1862.

               LIONS CLUB TIME-LINE

The time-line signpost was officially unveiled by
Coonamble`s Mayor Tim Horan, on 17th December
    2005, to commemorate Coonamble`s
Coonamble township was laid out of 1855 and
instead of having a multi-sign post pointing to
different cities and giving the distances away, the
figures on each of the signs are the years of
            establishment of those cities. 
The Time-Line post was manufactured by
Coonamble Lions Club members and erected by
              Coonamble Shire Council.
