Course and features
The Cooma Creek (technically a river) rises below The Peak, southeast of Snow Hill and west southwest of Brick Kiln Hill, part of the Great Dividing Range, and flows generally north and then north by east, joined by three minor tributaries and flowing through the town of Cooma before reaching its confluence with Rock Flat Creek near the locality of Chakola. Rock Flat Creek continues to the Numeralla River, which is a tributary of the Murrumbidgee River. The Cooma Creek descends 385 metres (1,263 ft) over its 42-kilometre (26 mi) course.
The Snowy Mountains Highway crosses Cooma Creek in Cooma; and the Monaro Highway crosses Cooma Creek at Bunyan.
