Cowra Voices

How did Cowra, a small country town in Central West NSW become arguably the only peace
tourism destination in Australia?
Listen to Cowra locals, both young and old, tell the story of how the tragic Cowra Breakout of
1944 became the catalyst for an enduri
ng friendship between Cowra and the Japanese people.
The Cowra Breakout was the biggest prisoner breakout during World War II when more than
1000 Japanese POWs escaped, ending in 234 deaths.
Cowra Voices guides users using geolocative technology through
the many sites of historic
significance like the POW Camp, the Cowra Japanese Garden & Cultural Centre, Australia's World Peace Bell, and Sakura
Avenue, all symbols of this peace and civic reconciliation.
Cowra Voices links people and stories to place, and enables users to experience
history
through intimate narratives that have to date remained mostly untold
