Owner description: The Cowra Visitor Information Centre is an essential first stop for visitors to the Cowra region. Our centre is home to 'Claire' the local girl who tells her personal account of the Cowra Breakout through a fascinating hologram presentation. The hologram is a free theatre and continues to be as popular as ever with the 60,000 plus visitors our friendly team welcome each year. Our centre is your one stop shop for local & regional information, maps, local produce, craft and now proudly over 40 varieties of local Cowra region wine. Why not select a bottle of award winning wine and some local produce to enjoy during your stay or better still, allow us to customise a hamper of local produce for you to enjoy during your stay.

“Best Visitor Information Centre I have ever been to...”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

I always make it a point of interest to drop in to Visitor Info Centres, as hey, they have the most info on the local area in which I am visiting.

Most of the time I am somewhat disappointed, but Cowra's Visitor Centre was a pleasant surprise. The hologram in the "tin shed" is fantastic!! It put everything about the POW Camp into context, and gave me a deeper understanding of the rest of the attractions around the town.

Oh, and the staff are brilliant and more than willing to help!

“a must see video/hologram”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

what an excellent and very instructive video we found it extremely moving, it was intersting the way the story was told through the eyes of a little girl, the centre also had a little museum, the staff were helpful

“A must see - advice well taken”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

We were advised by a friend and by the reception staff at our hotel that this was a must do first point of call in Cowra. This is great advice and must be heeded.

Most Info Centres are not worth the visit, this one is the complete opposite. The hologram and museum puts everything into perspective and contextualises the rest of your visit.

The hologram is just brilliant.
