Nature holidays around Cooma
Cooma is known as the gateway to the State's alpine area and the largest town in the Snowy Mountains. The surrounding rugged mountains and High Country plains provide a great area for hiking, horse riding and fishing.
Spectacular scenery is to be found at nearby Wadbilliga National Park, filled with rugged mountain ranges, deep river valleys, pockets of rainforest and wide plateaus.
Highlights of the park include the Brogo Wilderness Area, Tuross Falls and Tuross River Gorge. There is a walking track from Tuross Falls from the Cascades camping area, easily accessible by car from the Princes Highway, 30 kilometres from Cooma.
This area of mountainous wilderness cradles one of NSW's largest undisturbed river catchments and is a perfect area for long walks and overnight camping. Or drive to the top of Mt Gladstone for sweeping views of the mountains and Monaro Plains.
