Surveyed in 1849, Cooma is a town with a rich history approximately 400 kilometres southwest of Sydney. The discovery of gold permanently increased its population and brought prosperity to the township. The Snowy Scheme saw an influx of workers from Europe and dramatically changed the town's character. Today, the township benefits from snow sports tourism which has become its driving industry.



For an extensive view of Cooma and the surrounding countryside, you'd want to head up Nanny Goat Hill either by car or by foot. As the hill looked quite steep, we decided to drive rather than walk to the lookout at the top. Once there, you will notice a cute sculpture of a nanny goat perched on one of the rocks. The sculpture was created by local artist Chris Graham. A set of uneven steps will then lead you to the viewing platform.



Entrance to the Nanny Goat Hill Lookout is via Massie Street, between Soho and Creek Streets, right in the heart of Cooma. There is ample parking and a picnic table on site. We found it to be an attractive little spot to enjoy 360-degree views.
