History of Yallambee Lodge1995

In the late 80s, the Cooma-Monaro Council first voiced their support for the development of a hostel-style accommodation to support older people and families in need across Cooma and the Snowy Monaro region.

To bring this concept to reality, a grant in the order of $660,000 was obtained from the Federal Government. And, further adding to the groundswell of public support for the endeavour, a range of fundraising events were also held across the community, with local donations ultimately exceeding $244,000.
