Each year in February, the foothills of the Snowy Mountains in NSW come alive with the sounds of one of the most exciting and spectacular sports that you might see; RODEO!!

Rodeo is an exhibition of unquestionable grit, determination, fortitude and skill.  It is a sport that has developed from the strong history of the great Australian stockman.  A link with our long lost past where hard working men and women faced every adversity with the typical positive Australian attitude and still had enough energy for a bit of sport at the end of the day.

With a strong history of providing top level entertainment, the Cooma Rural Rodeo is popular with young and old alike.
