A visit to the historical Cooma Jail is a must when in town.
A very informative tour was provided by a current inmate. The inmates undertake training and provide the tours as part of their rehabilitation and road to release. Our guide, Tom, was a top bloke who knew a lot of the history of the jail, which dates back to 1788.
The jail has a very long history dating back to the first fleet and is still an operating correctional centre – find out more on Wikipedia.
