History

The Wiradjuri people were the original inhabitants of the region. Coolamon gets its name from the Wiradjuri term "Gullaman," meaning a versatile vessel for goods, children, and water. 

Established when the railway arrived in 1881, Coolamon became a Shire on 3 March 1906. The town features a heritage main street, gardens, and fertile farming lands. The railway's arrival led to the growth of farming communities and essential services.
