Local Attractions

Canowindra sits beside the Belubula river in some of the most beautiful red-earth countryside in Country NSW, 30 km north of Cowra. The town features a heritage-listed main street and a collection of art galleries showing works by local painters, potters and artisans.

 

Canowindra became world-famous in 1955, when a 360-million-year-old fossil was found. Today, you can see it among other fascinating exhibits at the amazing Age of Fishes Museum.

 

The town features excellent local food and wine establishments, and outside town, several wineries offer cellar door tastings and sales. Accommodation in Canowindra is plentiful, and don't forget to check the events calendar before you arrive.

 

Canowindra is also a popular destination for hot-air balloon rides and claims the title of â˜hot-air-ballooning capital of Australia'. Experience the exhilaration of an early-morning flight followed by a champagne breakfast, or be a spectator at the yearly Canowindra Balloon Challenge.
