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.
