The cemetery is part of the larger Cowra cemetery and very easy to access, just off the road. Very well done.

A visit here completes some of the Cowra area's WW2 history. Has graves of Australians, 2 which were awarded the George Cross for actions during breakout attempt from the POW camp, the many Japanese who were killed or suicided in their escape attempt, plus somewhat forgotten Indonesians interned during the war. Exremely well maintained lawns, gardens and monuments. Can visit anytime without restriction.

A beautiful tribute to the fallen Japanese soldiers of Cowra. Built alongside a Commonwealth War Graves cemetery holding the remains of a few of our Diggers, this was an enlightening and poignant place to visit. Well worth combining it with a visit to the POW camp.
