What travellers are saying
- Nice little gift shop, very clean toilets and a cafe also. The gardens are stunning and make you feel relaxed as soon as you see them. Beautiful ponds, waterfalls and running streams are so lovely. We bought a small bag of duck/fish food from the gift shop and had fun feeding the fish and ducks as we walked around. The paths are good and safe and there are seats scattered around if you need a rest, and there are also some electric golf carts to hire if you can’t walk around unaided. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit there.Written 8 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Very helpful staff and lots of free brochures, pamphlets and maps. A sensible way of planning your day in the area. There is a wonderful hologram theatre presentation about the Cowra Breakout, and a lot of information about the POW history of Cowra. Well worth visiting this VIC.Written 8 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Smaller and different to what I expected but we were there at the end of the day which was really nice...”at the going down of the sun, we will remember them”, a lovely way to end the day.
A peaceful setting and good to do after visiting the Cowra Breakout battle site.Written 21 June 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The remains of the POW camp are clearly seen and lots of signs and information boards to explain it all. There are clean toilets there also, and an interesting audio presentation also. Well worth a visit.Written 8 November 2023
- This item is pretty much in the middle of the city, with a fair bit of parking in close proximity. Once you park it will take a few minutes to walk there and read the plaques, and give the bell a dong... It is part of a world wide network of peach bells, so you might be visiting one of many during your travels... It wasnt on our list of must do's, but it was worth the few minutes it took to stop by.Written 12 February 2023
- The view from the Lookout gives a very clear perspective of the spreadout of Cowra with its very wide streets (and plenty of parking!).Written 11 February 2023
- The 2021 Archibald prize was doing its country tour and here it was. This along with free admission was a real treat.Written 28 April 2022
- Beautifully maintained outside. Clear.y heritage. No trains on these tracks for many, many years. Well worth a look.Written 10 October 2019
- This is a pretty simply attraction. In the middle of suburbia you will find these "gates" on the corner of a T intersection, in a small park. There is space to stop and have a closer look - we did - or you can just slow down as you drive by. It is just the two rock/brick "posts" of the old gates, so there isnt a whole lot to see, but it is certainly part of the towns history. Definitely worth at least a drive by, or if you have 5 minutes, park right in front of them and have a read of the plaques.Written 12 February 2023
- Very disappointed with this winery, purely because we saw it advertised in brochures, on Trip Advisor, on the Google information, in the Tourist Information Centre, in our caravan park. It was advertised as open. There were great reviews. We went all the way out there expecting a friendly wine tasting experience and to buy some local wine. When we got to the end of the road the winery was in there was a sign saying “open only Saturday and Sunday” So I phoned and the guy there sounded surprised that the advertising said otherwise. This is something we are finding often: that businesses advertise widely and then don’t change online and other information when that information changes for them. It is a lack of respect for their customers and a lack of care for tourists in your area. For gods sake, change your advertising!Written 15 September 2018
- Get away from the crowds and enjoy a spot beside the river. Very private for free camping or just come out for a picnic. Peace and serenityWritten 19 June 2020
- Gardens are at the Tourist Centre and well worth to have a loo. Well planned out and the smell Devine.Written 16 February 2022
- The Lone Pine Park was poorly signed and hard to find but there it was just beside the highway with no signage that I could see, The tree grown from seed from pines at Gallipoli the tree looks healthy and doing well. It sat behind some weeds and a small grassed area on the side of the hill leading up to the road with a small brass plaque indicating it was rededication of a Memorial Avenue established in 1917.Written 20 January 2022
- Played many country golf courses and this rates among the best. Great value ($30pp green fee, $35 a cart) and the course is in great condition compared to other country courses. We were there in May 2023.
Staff were also incredibly friendly and the clubhouse has a lovely outlook across the fairways. Definitely worth playing when you’re in Cowra.Written 30 May 2023
