Rock Flat: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Cooma Monaro Railway


Train rides have been suspended until further notice, however there is signage available for a self-guided walk around the railway precinct.

Cooma Railway Station was opened in 1889. Rail services to Cooma ceased in 1988. Visitors can still experience the nostalgia of rail travel on a 1924 rail motor. The rail motor departs the historic railway station each weekend (days and times vary seasonally and depend on school holiday periods), and travels north to Bunyan or further north to Chakola.

Centennial Park at Cooma


The lush green Centennial Park is in the centre of town and was originally designated a market square in 1849 by the white settlers of the town. The park's music shell was built in 1959 and provides a sheltered entertainment area. Also in the park is the Avenue of Flags, representing the 27 nations from which workers on the Snowy Mountains Scheme came.

Centennial Park is also home to the Cooma-Monaro Time Walk, a series of mosaics depicting the history of the Monaro. The mosaics were created by local artist Chris Graham and students at the local TAFE College in 1988 (Australia's Bicentennial Year).

Shaded trees and picnic benches make it a lovely spot to take a break during your trip.
