Set in the open grasslands of the Monaro region, Cooma rose to fame in 1860 when gold was discovered at Kiandra and thousands traveled through the town. A second boom lasted for the 23 years it took to build the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme, swelling the population with immigrants and endowing the town with a cosmopolitan atmosphere.
