We pulled in to Cowra show grounds and it looked large and clean. All the power and water points looked brand new. On three sides of the grounds are horses and on the fourth as is a petrol station.
I had a walk around the toilet/shower/laundry block and noticed on the wall the phone number to ring the caretaker. I rang and left a message. The caretaker arrived a little later but said he would be back to collect the $20.
We had read the pub was only 5min walk away and it was a stinking hot day so we headed to the pub. Unfortunately as it was a hot day the walk seemed to take twice as long and it was meant too, 10 min seemed like 20 min We walked over the bridge to the first pub, closed! 🙁 🙁 Noooo…. But behind it was another. Yipeee … aircon and a nice cold beer 🙂 Beer x2 $10
When we came out of the pub we noticed a small bridge over the river, under the bridge that we had crossed… a short cut 🙂
Someone had painted art on the columns of the larger bridge with cool art work which was nice to see. Kids were playing in the river and people sitting on the banks.
We walked back past the information centre and MacDonald and the large park/rest area full of roses and eagle statue. We must have missed the caretaker while we were out but he came around in the morning before drove over the road to top up on fuel and head to Yass.
