Bellevue hill lookout


Comprising a large space for unstructured recreation, playground equipment, shaded picnic facilities, free barbeques and public amenities, Bellevue Hill Reserve is one of Cowra’s most popular parks. To many local residents, the Reserve is referred to as ‘Billy Goat Hill’ after its steep nature and the goats that were once kept there.

Also located within the bounds of Bellevue Hill Reserve is the Cowra Japanese Garden & Cultural Centre. The site was selected due to the natural rock formation and serene atmosphere, both requirements for Japanese garden design. Mr Ken Nakajima, was appointed as landscape designer for the project in 1977, and the Cowra Japanese Garden was officially opened on October 21, 1979.

Open Hours:
Accessible at all times and admission is free.
