Cootamundra is the birthplace of cricket's greatest batsman, Sir Donald Bradman. This prosperous rural town surrounded by crops of canola is 380 km south-west of Sydney. It's popular with nature lovers who travel to see the extravagant blooming of countless Cootamundra wattle trees in July and August.

While in Cootamundra, you can play a round of golf at the oldest country course in NSW or enjoy the birdlife and natural habitat of Pioneer Park. Don't miss the spectacular Milestone Sculptures around town that celebrate Cootamundra's claim to produce some of the nation's finest quality wheat crops.
