Canowindra Information

Situated just 33km north of Cowra travelling towards Orange, is the historic township of Canowindra (pronounced Ca-noun-dra). Surrounded by rolling foothills, vineyards, olive groves, orchards and traditional farms,Canowindra is a classic country town with a twist.

The vineyards of Canowindra have been causing a stir in the wine world, consistently producing premium wines that have taken out numerous trophies and awards. Open every weekend for wine tasting and sales are The Falls Vineyard Retreat and Tom's Waterhole Wines. Wallington Wines are open the first weekend of every month and Swinging Bridge and Hamiltons Bluff by appointment.

A walk down the heritage listed main street will take you past cafes, pubs, clothing stores trading in beautiful linen and famous country labels such as RM Williams, guesthouses, galleries and antique stores. At the end of the main street is the spectacular Age of Fishes Museum, home to an incredible 360 million year old fossil collection and travelling exhibitions, as well as the Visitor Information Centre.

From the Museum, follow up Ferguson Street to another beautifully restored shopping quarter including The Canowindra Trading Post - well respected for its beautiful antiques and collectables, and the newly opened taste Canowindra cellar door and gallery.

If natural wonders take your interest, a short drive north west of Canowindra will reveal Nangar National Park. Covering approximately 3,416 hectares, Nangar is characterised by low rolling hills over much of the park with a striking cliff line on the northern boundary, known as Nangar Ridge. From the lookout on top of the ridge you can see the vast valley below and particularly during spring beautiful flowering plants are in abundance.

Recognised as the Ballooning Capital of Australia, for years hot air balloon enthusiasts have found the climate and topography, not to mention the scenery of Canowindra perfect for ballooning. Visit Canowindra in April for the Canowindra Balloon Festival.

In September is the classic Canowindra country show and Spring is the season for a myriad of events held during the Canowindra Springfest.
