Cowra Tourism and the Cowra Show Society have combined forces to make this year's Cowra Wine Show bigger and better than ever.
As a result Cowra Tourism Corporation is hosting the inaugural celebrations of the Cowra Wine Show weekend with the Cowra Winter Wanderlust, a program of events running from the July 22 to 24.
Partnering with local wineries, community groups, and businesses, Cowra Tourism is aiming for the festivities to drive an increase in overnight visitation and visitor spend in the region.
"We're excited to bring the Winter Wanderlust program to Cowra with the support of the Cowra Show Society and many other local businesses and groups," said Cowra Tourism's Acting Manager Kurt Overzet.
"Our aim is to encourage visitors coming for the Cowra Wine Show Public Tasting to stay longer and spend more money in the region by building on the incredible event that is the Cowra Wine Show and making a whole weekend out of it".
