Cooma’s central location makes it a great base for explor- ing the region. The Snowy Mountains Scheme, ski resorts, lakes and rural areas are all a leisurely drive away. Well-known for being home to Australia’s best snow sports, serious adventurers will thrive on challenging treks, climbs, cross-country skiing or challenging downhill runs when visiting the Snowy Mountains.
