Mount Mcdonald: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Cowra Military and Migrant Camps


The history of Cowra is marked by stories of the military and migrants from World War Two. Between 1940 and the end of the war, the Cowra Military Camp trained some 80,000 military personnel. After World War Two, the camp became home to between 17,000 and 19,000 new Australians in the form of the Cowra Migrant Camp.

Whilst the campsite itself, on the eastern side of town, is now private land, a memorial has been erected in honour of the migrant families of Cowra in Europa Park, east of Cowra on the Sydney Road. There is also a memorial on Military Parade to mark the location of the Military Camp.

The Cowra Heritage Walk


Stroll through Cowra's historic past. A brochure from the Cowra Visitors Centre sets out a heritage walk around Cowra that takes a leisurely hour, taking in sights like the old federation-style court house, the gothic stone St Raphael's church and Cowra Public School, built in 1882. See the town's first hotel, the old stone flour mill (1860) and Cowra's oldest home Ilfracombe (1879). Federation, Colonial and Victorian commercial buildings can all be seen in this gentle stroll around the town's business centre.

Sakura Avenue


In 1988, as a bicentennial project, Cowra Shire Council, in conjunction with the Japanese Government, planted 1988 cherry blossom trees between the Cowra War Cemetery, the site of the Prisoner Of War Camp and the Japanese Gardens, as a sign of peace and reconciliation with the Japanese people. All trees are sponsored by Japanese businesses and citizens and Australian school children.

The drive from the Garden in Spring when the Cherry Blossoms are out is a highlight of the season.
