Spring has finally sprung and to celebrate we’re hosting the Cowra Carnival of Colours!
The Cowra Carnival of Colours is a celebration of all things bright and cheerful. We have entered a new season and are excited to showcase the beautiful bursts of colours in our region thanks to the Canola Fields and Cherry Blossoms.
We have teamed up with a variety of local businesses to bring you experiences that will tantalize your taste buds, seduce your senses, and connect you to Country and the beauty of nature.
