Cowra boasts some of the best fine-dining and casual restaurants west of the Blue Mountains. In fact, they could mix it on any day with their city cousins in terms of fresh produce and creative cuisine. Our highly acclaimed food establishments receive consistent recognition, including accolades from the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide. The key to scoring this praise is the skill of our chefs, who turn locally grown ingredients, produced in the lush Lachlan Valley pastures, into mouth-watering meals, every time.
And why wouldn’t they? After all, Cowra beef and lamb products are the envy of the country, as is the fresh seasonal asparagus that grows around the area. Add to this the recent introduction of specialty local products such as prunes, olives and olive oil, stone fruit and honey products, and your palate will thank you for stopping in our town.
There’s an array of vibrant pubs and clubs, casual cafes and restaurants in Cowra that also adhere to our “fresh is best” mantra. They offer meals to delight all budgets and all occasions, whether it’s a family friendly meal or for a group get-together. Making every visitor feel welcome is their mission: they wear the “country hospitality” badge with pride.
If you’ve fallen in love with any of the taste sensations you’ve encountered on your stay in Cowra, don’t miss the monthly Farmers’ Markets which showcase the region’s specialty produce. Held on the third Saturday of every month at the Cowra Showground, it’s the place to meet the producers and sample jams and preserves, oils, free range eggs, meat products and fresh fruit and vegetables.
Food lovers should also mark Cowra’s annual “Cork and Fork” Festival on the calendar. Held every Spring, it’s where producers and winemakers highlight the best of their best, and you get to sample the sensations.
