Coonghoongbula (koo-nah-bull-ah) or "Coonie" to the locals, is the ideal destination for your next Snowy-Monaro getaway.

One of the original homesteads built c1840-1860, Coonie lets you step back in time. You’ll enjoy fresh country air and a cozy fireplace, and all the food, drink and adventure the high country has to offer.

‘The Barracks’ is a gorgeous self-contained loft cottage c1840 with private courtyard to the rear and a second courtyard and deck shared with the main residence.

The space
‘The Barracks’ features a cozy living and dining space on the ground floor with a large, open-plan loft above. The loft can be configured with two single beds and a queen, or a queen and a double. One of the couches in the living room can also become a fold out double bed if desired.

Enjoy self contained tranquility with your own kitchen, bathroom, mud room (perfect for wet snow gear) and private courtyard to the rear. There is also a side courtyard and verandah which connect you to the main house - these spaces are shared with the main house, and you may get to know our friendly menagerie of dogs, cats and chooks if you venture further afield for a stroll around our working regenerative farm.

The oldest building at Coonie, ‘The Barracks’ houses the original 1840s wood fired bread oven and old combustion stove to warm both your heart and your hands.

Where you’ll be

Dalgety, New South Wales, Australia

Coonie is a five minute drive from Dalgety, a small peaceful town on the banks of the Snowy River. It’s got a great pub, cafe, plenty of river frontage for strolling and a microbrewery and winery a bit further out of town.

25mins away is Jindabyne, a major snow season hub, with restaurants, bars, and cafes. There is also a large shopping centre in Jindabyne if you want to shop for some provisions for your stay.

A 45min drive gets you to Mt Kosciusko National Park. 55mins to Thredbo and Perisher for plenty of snow sports in winter and hiking and biking in the summer.
