Living and working in the Snowy Monaro Area

Only in the Snowy Monaro can you ski the highest mountain in Australia, take a spectacular drive through majestic forests to the coast to see the whales, come back up the mountain to see the platypus at Bombala and then continue of through the undulating farmland to watch the moon rise over Lake Jindabyne.

And while the natural environment is a major highlight of living in the Snowy Monaro, the region also offers the opportunity to experience fine dining, boutique wines, beers and spirits, quirky retail outlets and cohesive, vibrant communities willing to share the unique history and legends of a region that is symbolic with adventures. Rich agricultural land, job opportunities and inexpensive housing and land packages add to the many benefits of living the dream within the inspiring Snowy Monaro region.

The three main centres within the region are all situated on major highways with Canberra 1.5 hours from Cooma and Sydney just over 4 hours away. Education is important within these communities and major centres boast both public and private schools. Tertiary education is catered for at the Cooma Campus of Illawarra TAFE and at the innovative Snowy Monaro Country University Centre which allows students to complete degrees without the need to move from their home base.

Snowy Monaro has the highest mountain range in Australia with a wealth of snow based activities, mountain biking tracks, miles of waterways for fishing and paddling, gyms and swimming pools, golf courses, pony clubs … the list goes on and on.

The well-established industries of this region are tourism, agriculture and timber. As they continue to evolve, they encourage the development of supportive industries such as welding, fabrication and engineering where employment needs continue to grow. Tourism is the lifeblood of the region with jobs in accommodation and food services thriving. The establishment of a state of the art mill for processing plantation grown pine has created a sustainable resource for a range of employment opportunities with a second stage of development currently being planned.
