About
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.

The cowra breakout hologram is a must see before going around the area- goes for 9 mins and is excellent. Staff very friendly- one of the info banners in the main room had two spelling errors for the photo which is unfortunate.

I went in here because of heavy rain but also to ask about locations and history of the Cowra breakout. The lady was very informative and friendly and directed me to their hologram presentation about the Cowra breakout. I found it informative and helpful.

The staff at the information centre were so helpful and friendly.

We were very impressed with the free POW Hologram Theatre, which tells the story of the Cowra Breakout and its aftermath. Definitely a must see before going to the POW camp. Kids old or young will love it as a young woman "comes to life" out of a picture and tells her story.

Also there was an interesting collection of military historical artefacts such as weapons and uniforms etc.

The shop is fantastic and has a vast collection of local wines (we bought a red and white and both were fab).

For little kids there is a really good park next door, a Maccas and a coffee shop close by for mums and dads.

We appreciated the maps and hints the staff gave us about where to go in town for dinner, what to see in the district etc.

Staff very welcoming as soon as we walked in. Lots of locals doing Christmas shopping but the staff managed to look after all of us. Offered us local wine tasting and great range of local foods.
Watched hologram documentary of Cowra POW camp and breakout. Really really good and highly recommend a visit just to see that.
Got lots of information about what to do around Cowra.
Really well run information centre and obviously proud locals who love their town.
