Cowra Japanese Garden and Cultural Center in Cowra, New South Wales, is a oasis of peace and harmony where visitors can relax and appreciate the beauty of nature at any time of the year. There is no best time to visit our Japanese gardens, as each season offers a unique and spectacular display in surroundings that are serene and tranquil. Visit us in the spring months of September and October, when the gardens are filled with subtle cherry blossoms and fresh greenery, and in late spring when azaleas, camellias and wisteria adorn the gardens. Autumn, with its vibrant colors, is a popular time to visit as this period is a celebration of the gift of life generously given to us by nature, and is a transition into a peaceful winter. When winter arrives, the true essence of the Japanese gardens are revealed and the fundamental structure, spirit and quiet beauty is brought to the fore. Embark on a guided tour and discover the many aspects involved in the landscaping of Japanese gardens, or attend demonstrations by experts in various traditional Japanese crafts such as calligraphy, origami and ikebana, which is Japanese flower arranging. A visit to Cowra Japanese Garden and Cultural Center will reveal that there is something for everyone to enjoy.
