"nice country town"

Nicely situated around the Bombala river the town has an old quaint ambience. Decent shops and pubs and a very good RSL club for evening meal. Excellent public swimming pool and scenic river walk. Good motel in the centre of town, very friendly folks. Probably a little quiet for teenagers but they can always make their own fun. Surrounding countryside is wonderful for walking, camping, fishing, and just getting away from it all.

"I saw snow there"

Bombala is located on the southern side of the Snowy Mountains area of New South Wales. It is a very quaint town that boasts itself as platypus country. We were driving past but could not see any. It is less touristy here than the likes of Jindabyne or Cooma so it bends itself to more natural country like feel. The people are all very nice and it gets cold enough to actually snow. The drive around town is very scenic with nice rivers and plains to really show you the best side of New South Wales country. This town is definitely worth a drive through coming form Nimmitabel if you are planning to head south after the snowfields.
