Cooma - Capital of the Snowy Mountains
Cooma is geographically unique. In one direction you have the mountains and skiing, in the other the coast and surfing and in the other all the delights of Canberra, Australia's Capital City. Within 90 minutes you'll reach one of these destinations. We call it the magic triangle. Why not stay a little longer and explore a little more, lets start with Cooma...............
