Food and wine in Cowra
Cowra is gaining a reputation as a wine-producing region and source of specialty products. You'll find plenty of cellar doors where you can sample award-winning local wines from golden chardonnay to soft, ripe reds.
Surrounded by farmland on the Lachlan River, Cowra is known for its vineyards and Japanese Cultural Centre. It is the commercial centre of a strong agricultural area in Country NSW that covers horticulture, aquaculture and viticulture.
Delicious food and wine, stunning natural attractions and a fascinating military history make Cowra a great place to visit. In 1944, more than 1,000 Japanese prisoners of war attempted to escape from a local internment camp. Cowra has since forged a remarkable friendship with Japan, and you can see many tributes to this special relationship around town. Explore the Japanese Garden and Cultural Centre, teahouse, pottery house, bonsai house and pretty gardens at Sakura Avenue.
Cowra's wine industry is now internationally recognised, especially the award-winning chardonnay. The Cowra Wine Show in July is the third largest in the country. For more fresh local produce, visit the Cowra Farmers Market.
