Cootamundra was incorporated as a township on 9 August 1861. Like many other towns in the Riverina, it was originally populated by those attracted by the gold rush of the 1860s but became a quiet yet prosperous agricultural community after the local deposits were exhausted.
Cootamundra is the birthplace of Sir Donald Bradman AC, an Australian cricketer universally regarded as the greatest batsman of all time.
Cootamundra offers you a lot of interesting and entertaining ways to spend quality time. Birdwatching trails, the bright yellow blooms of countless Cootamundra wattle, impressive sporting facilities and well established historical, cultural and arts communities provide for every kind of personal interest.
