So much to explore in the Southern NSW region

The majestic Snowy Mountains, the sparkling Sapphire Coast, the verdant Yass Valley, the Great Diving Range and the Southern Tablelands – all highlight the unique area that is the Southern NSW region. You’ll find a thriving beef and dairy industry that began in the 1850s in Bega, cheese capital of Australia. In Goulburn, the Big Merino is a symbol of the 200-year-old local wool industry.

Follow the oyster trail from Bermagui to Wonboyn; fish, surf and kayak in Bateman’s Bay; spot platypus in Bombala; see the remnants of early pioneer life in Delegate; marvel at the Snowy Hydro dams in Cooma and Khancoban; visit the Mogo Zoo; ski, mountain bike or hike in Kosciuszko National Park; and pan for gold or pick some cherries in Young. Resident wildlife include kangaroos, wallabies, possums, bandicoots, sea eagles, parrots, lyrebirds and wombats.

The area is home to more than 200,000 residents including four large Aboriginal nations:Gundungurra, Ngunnawal, Ngarigo and Yuin. The population is expected to keep growing, with the fastest-growing age group aged 65 and over. Affordable housing, wide open spaces, plenty to do and see, arts and cultural events, and a rich history are what attract people to become residents of the area.
