Introduction of Cowra

Cowra is a small town in (The Central West), west-central New South Wales, about 300km east from Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, and 190km from Canberra, the capital territory of New South Wales.

Cowra is rich in cauliflower. Since September of each year, the cauliflower has been yellowed on a large scale, becoming a sea of yellow flowers. In addition, in August 1944, more than 1000 Japanese prisoners tried to escape from Japanese prisoners of war camps, which led to the deaths of 231 people and four other Australians, known as the "The Cowra Breakout", in which Cowra was once home to Japanese prisoners during the second World War. This true history was put on screen by Australians in 1991.

Cowra is also known for its high-quality wines, nurtured by the (Lachlan River) and (Belubula River) rivers of the Lakland River, fertile soil, and a climate of appropriate temperature. Cowra has become one of the most famous wine regions in New South Wales. Cowra began growing grapes in the late 19th century, established many vineyards after 1970, and every October, Cowra hosts the annual Cowra Regional Chadonel Vineyard Festival. Every year it attracts a large number of wine lovers.
