  • Stunning manicured gardens & lawns with plenty of space to throw down a picnic blanket. Hand fed the ducklings & Koi in the ponds. Cultural centre had quality exhibits and original art for sale. Coffee shop food was affordable prices and large serves. Coffee milkshake on a double shot of espresso was a standout. Great day out for a family picnic and shocked that it wasn't crowded at all :) We will be back!
  • Truly a treasure and worthy tribute! Also worth planning a visit during the cherry blossom festival with its many displays and performances. The gardens are beautiful, well maintained and very tranquil.
  • Loved the place, So very neat & tidy well manicured & laid out. Such a relaxing peaceful Place for my family and anyone else. The Gallery is equally amazing & informative of the Japanese History. It was the first time I have visited for over the past 35 years & is today still as a beautiful place as it was when I visited when a child. Highly recommend to anyone passing through Cowra.
  • The Japanese Gardens is a real gem in the ruff. To see how beautiful the gardens are later out and the perfect they are. Also there is a great restaurant on the site.
  • We went to the Garden for Girls Day on the 3rd March as per events on the web site only to find the Garden personnel knew nothing about this event. It was not on. We were very disappointed. The Garden itself was excellent. Should not advertise events if you are not going to have them.
