Cooma is a town with a multi-cultural flavour and has a population of just over 10,000. Our home is situated 830 metres above sea level and just 1.6kms from the centre of town. .
Something about ourselves
We are just new to retirement, very family orientated with 4 grown children and 4 grandchildren. We have travelled all our lives and now find that home exchanges are the only way to really experience the true destination. We are experienced exchangers and have made life long friends with not only our exchangers but also with their families and neighbours. We do prefer destinations off the main tourist trail but also love to feel the hectic pace of life in major cities. We will go anywhere and would love to go everywhere.
