We were in Cooma for ANZAC Day so visited the cenotaph and attended the service and parade. The cenotaph has a great battlefield bronze diorama which is well worth a look. The cenotaph is well maintained and easily accessible.

In the middle of the road directly in front of the Court House and Post Office this memorial has a fascinating bronze diorama of the battle front. Won't take you long but well worth a look.
