Cooma Area

The Cooma Monaro Region first attracted settlers to the region 150 years ago for the grazing potential of the vast grasslands. Since then Cooma has welcomed gold miners, graziers and the many Australians, ol and new, who built the Snowy Scheme.

Today, visitors are attracted to the snow in winter and the cold fresh air of the mountains in summer. There are several National Parks within one hour of the town of Cooma. Namadgi National Park to the north, Wadbilliga National Park to the east and Kosciuszko National Park to the west with the highest mountain in Australia, Mount Kosciuszko. All told some of the more varied landscape you are likely to witness anywhere in Australia.

Coomas central location makes it a great base for exploring the region. The Snowy Mountains Scheme, ski resorts, lakes and rural areas are all a leisurely drive away.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
