Cootamundra is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of New South Wales.

History

Cootamundra first existed as an electorate from 1904 to 1941.

The district elected one member between 1904 and 1920 and between 1927 and 1941. In 1920, it absorbed Burrangong and Yass and elected three members under proportional representation. In 1927, Young and Temora, were separated from it and Cootamundra reverted to being a single member electorate.

Cootamundra was recreated for the 2015 state election, combining the western part of the abolished district of Burrinjuck with the eastern part of the abolished district of Murrumbidgee.
