Cootamundra

Cootamundra has an elevation of 318m and is centrally located geographically in the South West Slopes of New South Wales - between Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. It is less than two hours drive from Canberra. Cootamundra is a corruption of the Aboriginal word 'Gooramundra' meaning turtles, swamp or low-lying. Cootamundra is home of the Cootamundra Wattle Acacia Baileyana which is probably the best known of all cultivated acacias. The Cootamundra Wattle is naturally restricted to the South Western Slopes of New South Wales and it is cultivated widely both in Australia and overseas. The Wattle Time Festival is held during the month of August each year.'Wattle Valley' on the Berthong Road, north of Cootamundra is a natural area where the wattles grow. Sir Donald Bradman was born at 89 Adams Street Cootamundra, (then a small private hospital) and lived at Yeo Yeo for the first few years of his life. Cootamundra was first settled in the 1830's. The town was built on what was originally a stock station called 'Cootamondra' owned by pioneer, John Hurley. By the 1860's settlement about the station had increased to such an extent that a certain amount of town planning was necessary. The town was surveyed as the 'village of Cootamundry' and the plan was approved in 1861. Cootamundra and district have always produced good beef, lamb, wool and rich crops of grain. Many of the older buildings remain, and are being sensitively restored, while in Cootamundra's Cooper St a whole avenue of century-old elm trees have been heritage listed. Since it's earliest days, the Cootamundra district has enjoyed prosperity from its natural environment, which even today supports a diverse mix of agricultural pursuits. The railway came through in 1877 encouraging the further growth of pastoral and related industries.

Cootamundra: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Captains Walk


Unique to Cootamundra, the Captains Walk features 42 bronze sculptures of Australian Test Cricket Captains, along with Unaarrimim the leading Aboriginal player in the first Australian cricket team to tour England in 1868.

Cootamundra has strong connections with two Australian test cricket captains, being the birthplace of Sir Donald Bradman and a former home of Bill Murdoch. Their careers led to a special interest in cricket among the people of Cootamundra, which still prevails, with Cootamundra boasting nine cricket ovals with three turf wickets.

Coota Beach Volleyball


The Coota Beach Volleyball event is held every year in the month February. This year is the 20th year the event has been running and is sure to be the biggest one yet! The event goes over two days and is one of the biggest weekends of the year in Cootamundra.

A street is blocked off and filled with sand and then the volleyball courts are mapped out. Get in early because there are limited spots for teams, with so many people wanting to participate in the event! Live music runs through-out the day and other activities while your team are playing are held during both days. The event is dog friendly and you are also allowed to bring your own alcohol- but strictly no glass. So why not bring a picnic blanket and come and enjoy the event- even if you aren't smashing some balls over the net.
