On your whey
Wander through Coolamon's heritage main street and explore boutique shops, cafes and museums - just a half-drive from Wagga Wagga.
Visit the historic 1900s Up-to-date Store with its original fittings and displays, the Store is home to the Garth Jones, Mavis Furner and Reg Goode Collections. See how firefighting has evolved at the Coolamon Fire Museum, which is home to thousands of firefighting items from all over Australia and the world.
When it’s time for lunch visit one of the many eateries on offer, including the Coolamon Cheese Factory.

Before leaving the area be sure to take a short drive to one (or more) of the quaint surrounding towns, choose from Ganmain, Ardlethan, or the smaller villages of Marrar, Matong and Beckom.
