Cooma, New South Wales

Upcoming Events in Snowy Monaro

Cooma image

Cooma is the major town of the Snowy Mountains region and a gateway to the State's alpine area. From Mount Gladstone you can enjoy sweeping views of the mountains and the plains. Horse riding in surrounding bush land or fly-fishing for trout in the near by streams and lakes are some of the wonderful outdoor activities on offer. In 1949 Cooma became the headquarters for the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme, the biggest civil engineering project ever undertaken in Australia. More than 100,000 people from about 30 countries were employed in the region on a project that lasted until 1974. Visit the Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre for insight into this amazing story. Explore the town's National Trust classified sites including Victorian cottages, jail, courthouse and post office on the Lambie Town Walk. Or visit the surrounding Deua and Wadbilliga National Parks to see native animals and wildlife. Cooma offers a wide variety of accommodation available, and makes a perfect base for exploring and experiencing all that the Snowy Mountains and Kosciuszko National Park have to offer.
