Cowra Garrison Gates

Overview

Resolutely standing guard within Cowra’s residential area, on the corner of Binni Creek Road and Amaroo Avenue, you’ll find the Garrison Gates. The brick structures mark the original entrance to the headquarters of the 22nd Garrison Battalion, the unit responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Cowra POW Camp. Today, the Garrison Gates are flanked by rosemary in a sign of remembrance and commemoration. Take a moment to stop by the gates on your way to Cowra’s other war-time monuments, they stand as one of the few physical remnants of the POW Camp that are still intact today.
