Summary of The South Coast and Snowy Mts.

The area that is the South Coast and the Snowy Mountains is mainly in the state of New South Wales. This area is one of the most beautiful areas of Australia, with its beaches and mountains and the Southern highlands.
Royal National Park is a big part of this area. It is the 2nd oldest national park in the world, behind Yellowstone, and consists of 37,000 acres. I thas woodlands, beaches, rainforests, and much more. Wollongong is where the most visited and beautiful beaches are. It is the 3rd largest city in New South Wales.
The Southern Highlands is a very interesting place. It is actually at the North end of the South Coast, and it is full of little villages and cottages. Many Sydneysiders take refuge here from the big city. These little villages have kept the population so it is a getaway for people and quiet place to relax.
Goulburn is the sheep capital of the world. It actually has a big statue of a merino, called "The Big Merino." This town is like stepping backing time j
just because it keeps its buildings looking like something out of the 19th century.
Cooma is a small town that sits at the bottom of the Snowy Mountains. It is known for catttle, skiingm and egineering. This is the place where the mountain workers hang out on the weekend, and where a lot of tourists come and go before skiing.
All along the South Coast there are bays and beaches where Sydneysiders love to spend there time as well. They are over ten different major beaches, alot of different choices to have.
