Adaminaby is an historic town located north-west of Cooma. A trout fishing centre and winter sports destination, its economic life is built around tourism and agriculture. It is also a popular destination for horse riding and bush walking in the Kosciuszko National Park.

The present town of Adaminaby was created when the Eucumbene River was dammed as part of the Snowy Mountains Scheme in 1958. The old town was flooded and relocated and can still be seen in times of drought when the Eucumbene Dam waters are low.

The pristine lakes and rivers of the Snowies offer the best trout fishing in the State and the lakeside villages of Old Adaminaby and Anglers Reach offer magnificent lake vistas and relaxed accommodation.
