New Residents


Welcome to Cowra!

Cowra is a growing community and we welcome all new residents who have made the move to our town! Whether you've moved here for a tree change, for a new job, to raise a family or to retire, we are the perfect place to settle in.
With a number of primary and high school education options, sporting facilities, sporting clubs, health centres, community groups and limitless weekend activities, we hope you love Cowra as much as we do.
Cowra Council is keen to provide whatever assistance possible for new residents and businesses to make their move to Cowra easy and enjoyable.

Our New Residents Kit(PDF, 2MB) is jam-packed with great information about our town, the council and contacts for local schools, businesses and community groups.

You can also access a mobile-friendly version of the New Residents Kit(PDF, 3MB)
