On the Monaro Plains in the high country, Cooma is the largest town in the Snowy Mountains and home to the Snowy Hydro Mountains Scheme, Australia’s greatest engineering project that generates hydro-electricity.
 
With bushwalking, mountain biking, horse-riding, fishing and white-water rafting, the beautiful Cooma region in NSW Snowy Mountains is perfect for outdoor adventures. The wilderness experiences are unforgettable, with Australia’s highest peak in Kosciuszko National Park. To the east are more magnificent national parks and the sparkling Sapphire Coast. You can spot platypus in the early mornings and late afternoon in the Bombala Platypus Reserve, near Bombala.
 
As well as Cooma, other charming towns to visit include Adaminaby to the northwest, Bredbo and Michelago to the north, Numeralla to the northeast, and Bombala to the south and Nimmitabel to the southeast. Cooma is a little over an hour’s drive to Canberra, 1 hour and 40 minutes to Merimbula the gateway of the beautiful Sapphire Coast.
 
There is an abundance of lifestyle benefits available to you in country NSW and you will be amazed at what you will have access to - and it all comes without the queues and crowds of a big city. For more information visit our website
