Welcome to the Cootamundra Shire Council Website

Cootamundra is a thriving, lively Shire set within a natural environment.  It is a community with a heart based on its country values, its sense of belonging, its spirit and the warmth and friendliness of its people. Cootamundra Shire, consisting of Cootamundra and the villages of Stockinbingal and Wallendbeen, has a combined population of around 7,500 people who have chosen to live here because of the community spirit, the affordable lifestyle, the natural setting, the different choices of rural, residential, village or town living, the retail, health, education and cultural services, the prosperous economy and easy access to Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, the mountains, the outback and the coast.

Come and experience life the way it is meant to be lived. Come to Coota

In focus this week


Notice is hereby given that the water supply

will be interrupted between
8.00am and 4:00pm
from  Monday 31st August 2015.

Mains flushing will occur throughout Cootamundra town streets over the next two weeks.

It is expected Flushing will commence in the Warren sub-area and Matilda Avenue area consecutively and progressively work towards the centre of town.

While this work is carried out, low water pressures and turbidity may be experienced in other areas of the township.

These interruptions are essential to enable Council to carry out these works and it is advisable, when the water is turned back on, to run a tap to clear internal pipes prior to doing any washing.


Any inconvenience to consumers is regretted.
