Cootamundra is a town in the South West Slopes region of New South Wales, Australia and within the Riverina.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cootamundra: Poppa's Fudge & Jam Factory (in Young), Iandra Castle (in Greenethorpe) and Gundagai (Gundagai Museum & Gundagai Heritage Railway). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Adelong Falls and see the interesting displays at Cootamundra Heritage Centre.
