Cooma Cottage is a famous and Nationally important heritage property in Yass.
The great Australian explorer Hamilton Hume lived here from 1840 until his death in 1873. Hume is famously known for his exploration from Gunning to Corio Bay with William Hovell in 1824-5. Hume ran three fine merino wool properties in the district. He extended Cooma Cottage into the now fine example of a Palladian Style Bungalow.
