Owner description: Tranquil. It's the perfect word to describe Cowra's Japanese Garden. You can't help but feel completely at peace when you walk through the lush gardens and cascading streams which represent the landscapes of Japan: where the hill is a mountain, streams are the rivers and the ponds inland lakes and the sea. Is this the most serene place in NSW? Spend some time walking around the equisitely manicured Kaiyushiki (strolling) garden, designed by Ken Nakajima and opened in 1979, and you be the judge.

“Peace and Tranquility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

If stopping in or just passing through, a visit to the Japanese Gardens is an absolute must see at any time of the year. The award winning gardens are designed as a ‘stroll through’ space with winding footpaths, luscious plants and water features.

Wander through the garden and relax near one of the small ponds. Feed the fish and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this lovely place.

“Beautiful Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Beautiful gardens that you can take plenty of time wandering around. Very peaceful. Kids were able to buy a bag of fish food to feed the fish which they loved doing. The small Cultural Centre & Cottage where interesting to look at too.Easy to find, plenty of free parking.

“Enjoyable day out during the Festival”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

There was plenty to see during the festival, and the gardens were at their best! The displays were very impressive, and the extra activities during the festival such as attending a traditional japanese tea ceremony and watching the martial arts and drumming displays were fantastic. The gift shop has some really lovely items very reasonably priced.
