Cowra, New South Wales

Cowra, New South Wales resides within the Cowra Shire, on the banks of the Lachlan River. As of the 2011 census, the town’s population was 12,147 residents. The land surrounding Cowra was inhabited pre-history by the Wiradjuri. George Wilson Evans, the first white explorer, named the area the Oxley Plains. The Surveyor-General, John Oxley, was Evans’ superior officer. Evans declared the area “unfit for white settlement.” Near today’s Billimari, a military depot was founded, called Soldiers Flat. Additional settlers came to the area in the 1830s. In 1847, the settlement became known as Cowra and was designated as a village in 1849. It is believed that the name Cowra meant ‘rocks’ in the aboriginal language. Gold prospectors passed through the small town on their way to gold fields, leaving family members behind in Cowra. Later, in the late 19th century, gold was discovered closer to Cowra, at Mount McDonald. In 1886, the railroad from Sydney reached Cowra. Cowra is the home of the annual Festival of International Understanding. Because of the city’s contributions to promotion of peace and international understanding, a replica of the United Nation’s World Peace Bell stands in Cowra. This is an honor typically reserved for a capital city.
