A day In Cowra

Cowra is about a 2 hours drive from Canberra in the central west of NSW. We did a day trip there last Friday in perfect Spring weather - just for fun.

First stop was for a great coffee at Boorowa, then just outside Cowra we stopped for lunch at the Quarry Restaurant and Cellar door where we were able to sample some of Cowra's wonderful produce (and wine) from an impressive menu.

Next stop for us was the beautiful Cowra Japanese Gardens and Cultural Centre. Completed 21 years ago, the gardens are a peace token and commemoration of the Cowra POW camp breakout by Japanese prisoners in 1944. The gardens looked stunning today - an amazing sight in the typically Australian landscape surrounding it (It's the largest Japanese garden outside of Japan!) - and thought provoking too because of the reason it is here .........
