Cowra: Into the 21st Century

Situated in the picturesque Lachlan Valley of Central NSW, Cowra Shire has a rich Indigenous and European heritage, steeped in fascinating history. But what of the last three decades, as Cowra and the Shire's villages moved into the 21st century?

Exploring 30 years of life in the Cowra Shire, Cowra: Into the 21st Century includes contributions from over 150 local authors and photographers. This beautifully illustrated 400 page hardback book provides an overview of the progress and development of the Shire from the years 1988 to 2018, shining a light on its residents and their achievements.
