Cooma Cottage

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The great Australian explorer Hamilton Hume lived here from 1840 until his death in 1873. Hamilton Hume is famously known for his exploration from Gunning to Corio Bay with William Hovell in 1824-5. Hume ran three fine merino wool properties in the district. He extended Cooma Cottage into the now fine example of a Palladian-style bungalow.

Visit Cooma Cottage and enjoy a personal tour and the unique surroundings of this important heritage property on the original 100 acres.

Coach tours are a specialty, with optional lunches or teas. Cooma Cottage provides a unique pastoral setting for weddings, with great photo opportunities.
