Cowra Italy Friendship Monument

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Cowra’s connection to Italy is a powerful one forged through wartime and peaceful connections. The striking Cowra Italy Friendship Monument, unveiled in 1997, is a symbol of this unity on two fronts. Firstly, it commemorates the Italians who, during World War II, served on the side of the Allies, the Italian POW’s lodged at the Cowra POW Camp, and Italian and Australian service personnel who lost their lives for their country. Secondly, the Cowra Italy Friendship Monument, which you will find at the eastern end of Kendal Street, serves to celebrate the involvement of the Italians in the evolution of Cowra’s rich cultural environment.
