About the AWPCS





Hi I am Allan Young, Chief Executive Officer for Elouera Association (Inc).  Over ten years ago I moved my family from Perth to Cootamundra to take up my position.  It was a huge move but one I have never regretted.  The purpose of this page is to present families of people with a disability with the option of relocating to a country lifestyle, but one where a service is available to meet the needs of family members.


Cootamundra is located halfway between Sydney and Melbourne, it is a well serviced town with a population of 6500 and everything a family could need.  The Cootamundra Shire Council may offer people wanting to invest in the area assistance.  Our organisation is aware waiting lists to special education facilities and quality employment services in the city can be a problem, so why not visit us and see what we can offer as an alternative to city life and inadequate services for your family members.  


Cootamundra has a huge range of shops including Woolworth's, Mitre 10, Toyworld, a town Laundry, Cafe's, Hair Dressers, Camping and Bike stores, IGA, Accountants, Lawyers, and every major Bank.  Businesses are doing well in a town that looks like it is prosperous and not dying like in some centre's.  Close to Cootamundra you have Young, Wagga Wagga and Canberra if you want to make a day of it at the bigger stores.



With two Primary Schools, a High School and a Catholic School as well as our Elouera Special School education needs are well taken care of, with some of Australia's best Universities in Wagga Wagga and Canberra, further education is accessible, we also have a fantastic TAFE.  


Our town has a great hospital and many good doctors including surgeons.  Specialist service are available, some more regular than others but with Wagga Base hospital only an hour away medical needs are covered.


The Cootamundra regional command of the Police Department provides us with a feeling of security, this however is almost over kill as Cootamundra is on record as being New South Wales equal lowest area for crime.  Bring your kids up safe.

We have a retirement village that offers all levels of care in picturesque gardens.  The elderly have many in house care programmes through the Greater Murray Health Service and the Community Health and Community Centre.


The shire provides services such as the town pool, an olympic sized pool very popular with the kids.  Our recently renovated Library is well equipped and has modern meeting rooms.

All of the major and some minor denominations are represented as are all of the major service clubs.


I personally live out of town on six acres and you have the choice of in town living or rural blocks.  With house prices a fraction of what you would pay in Sydney, you can live in relative luxury.  Three real estate agents service the town and they will assist in finding the perfect location for your family.



An inspection of our services is available by arrangement and you may contact me (Allan Young) for further information on (02)6942 6586.  I get to Sydney most months so if you would like me to meet with you in Sydney to discuss the Elouera Association (Inc) and living in the country just ask.

Take the plunge, like me its a choice I doubt you will regret.
