Despite a smaller population, Canowindra’s events, award-winning produce and wineries and country charm attracts thousands of visitors each and every year. 

As you drive down Canowindra’s main street, Gaskill Street, you will find small boutique stores, arts and crafts, hotels, cafes, accommodation and at the end of the bendy street, a world class fossil museum where visitors can take a 360 million year trip back in time. 

The Age of Fishes Museum is one of only two museums of its kind in the world and allows visitors to get up close and personal with fossils that inhabited the world long before the dinosaurs. 

Don't just restrict yourself to the CBD of Canowindra, the surrounding countryside and wineries are a cornerstone of Canowindra’s appeal to tourists.
