Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre
The Snowy Hydro Discovery Centre is a state-of-the-art visitor facility showcasing the remarkable story of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme, from the days of early construction days to the pivotal role the scheme continues to play today.
Known as the gateway to the Snowy Mountains, the idyllic town of Cooma provides a convenient base for visitors planning a trip to the nearby ski destinations of Thredbo or Perisher Valley during the winter months.
Throughout summer, Cooma isn't short of events and things to do either. Bushwalking trails are Cooma's specialty, with many walks available for you to enjoy the stunning landscape locally or just a short drive away. Between Cooma and the NSW coast, you'll find the Wadbilliga National Park, a rugged and remote forest. Set out for a day trip, and don't miss the Tuross Falls and the 5-km Tuross River Gorge walking track.
The Lambie Town Walk is a 5 km self-guided tour that introduces you to Cooma's history. You'll pass the town's heritage railway station, quaint cottages and Lambie Gorge, originally an Aboriginal women's site.
Cooma welcomes visitors with plenty of restaurant and accommodation options to suit any budget or lifestyle.
