Sit­u­ated in the cen­tral west re­gion of New South Wales, Cowra is about a four hour drive in­land from Syd­ney. Cowra is known as a town of great ad­ven­tures of­fer­ing a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ences such as bou­tique vine­yards fea­tur­ing great food, wine and hot air bal­loon­ing which is a breath­tak­ing way to ap­pre­ci­ate the vast and beau­ti­ful land­scape sur­round­ing the town. But no visit is com­plete without a stroll through the peace­ful tran­quil­lity of the fa­mous Cowra Ja­panese Gar­dens, where the fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory link­ing Cowra and Ja­pan is wait­ing to be un­cov­ered. 2008年,日本電視台製作了一部電視片《那時候,我們的生命薄如紙》(On That Day, Our Lives Are Lighter Than The Toi­let Pa­per: The Great Cowra Break­out),作為曾震驚世界的一場戰犯血腥越獄事件的55年祭奠。該事件發生在二戰結束時的澳洲考拉,導致2百多日本戰俘的亡魂永遠地留在這塊土地上。為了讓後人銘記那段不堪回首的歷史, 1992年聯合國將澳洲的世界和平鐘設在了考拉,成為了世界上唯一一個設立在偏遠小鎮的和平鐘,偏遠寧靜的考拉鎮也因此聲名遠播,遊客不絕。
