Coolamon & Beyond - Regional Tour
Coolamon Shire is ideally situated just a short detour from the Olympic, Newel and Sturt Highways. This not only gives visitors easy access to all the towns and villages of the Shire, but also to our neighbours!
The Wagga Wagga, Junee, Temora, Narrandera and Bland all bound Coolamon Shire and make for a great visitor experience.
Base yourself in Coolamon Shire and take a day trip to one of the following areas to really explore what the region has to offer!
Rail and history enthusiasts must visit Junee Shire and see the Junee Roundhouse Museum, Railway Station and its historic Refreshment Rooms, the Monte Cristo homestead (Australia's most haunted house) and of course the award winning Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory. Just a short 30 minute drive from Coolamon.

If planes are more your thing, a trip to Temora is a must! The famous Temora Aviation Museum will excite any visitor, and if you happen to be travelling on a flying day you can join the thousands of other people to witness some of our historic aircraft take to the sky! Located around 50 minutes from Coolamon, a visit to Temora is well worth the drive!
