Cowra Japanese Garden and Cultural Centre

Opened in 1979, the multi award-winning Cowra Japanese Garden is a 'must see' at any time of the year. The Garden's designer, Ken Nakajima, created the Kaiyushiki (strolling) Garden to symbolise the Japanese landscape. The rocky hillside, manicured hedges, waterfalls and streams, and the two lakes provide a serene environment for a myriad of birdlife. Special features of the Garden include a Bonsho Bell, a traditional Edo Cottage, an authentic open air Tea House and a Bonsai House.

The cultural centre showcases exhibitions from a variety of local and regional artists and has two galleries featuring an extensive collection of Japanese artworks and artefacts.

Take time to explore the five hectares of garden and enjoy its beauty and tranquillity. Feed the Koi carp from the viewing platforms overlooking the lakes. Enjoy modern Australian and Japanese cuisine at the licensed cafe.
