New pamphlet hopes to further promote peace

A new pamphlet has been launched in the hopes of further promoting Cowra's World Peace Bell as one of the town's tourist highlights.

The updated pamphlet includes new images of the bell and events featuring the landmark, as well as a map and information around important dates and "Friends of the Bell".

Chairperson of the Australian Chapter of the World Peace Bell Association, Ian Brown, said the new pamphlet will further promote Cowra's focus on history and peace.

"We're promoting peace, the history of our relationship with peace is something we must reboot, which is why we've done the brochure," he said.

"I would like to thank Linda (Barron) and the team from Cowra Shire Council, especially council for funding this brochure. It's essential we keep promoting this bell."

Cowra Mayor, Councillor Bill West said the Peace Bell should be a focus of tourism alongside the Cowra Breakout and Cowra Japanese Garden.

"It's telling a story of history. It's one big story and we need to be telling all of the story," Cr West said.

The pamphlet can be found at the Cowra Visitor Information Centre.
