Located in Central Gippsland on the traditional home of the Brayakaulung people on the land of the Gunaikurnai Nation. Cowwarr is derived from an indigenous place name and we acknowledge their elders past and present. Cowwarr is a small rural village that was originally based on farming and logging. After the discovery of gold it became a staging post and supply base for the Gippsland Gold Rush. It is now an irrigation farming district. Cowwarr, population approximately 100 in the township and around 300 in the surrounding farming district, has a friendly country pub, Cricket Club Hotel a general store serving as a post office and petrol station a Catholic Church and a tiny primary school. It has the usual country combination of sporting activities of Australian Rules football, cricket, netball and tennis. Swimming is in the Rainbow Creek picnic area on the edge of the village or at the local Cowwarr Weir reserve on the Thompson River about 10 minute drive up the road. There are plenty of opportunities for bike riding and walking as we are adjacent to the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail.
Cowwarr is also a great jumping of point to explore the Gippsland lakes, beaches and high-country the diverse environments of temperate rain-forests to alpine plains. Tourism Wellington
