Nowra is the coastal destination encounted for Bustout before heading west to Canberra. Nowra could have so much going for the town/city. Unfortunately the developers hammer has held sway and little city heritage remains. The visitor is confronted with graffiti two dominant supermarkets and their obligatory blank walls with one fronting a pathetic mall scene
The name Nowra, originally written by Europeans as 'nou-woo-ro' (pronounced Nowa Nowa by the Aborigines of the area), is the Aboriginal word for black cockatoo
The Nowra Township was officially recognised in 1852. Less than ten years later, in 1861, a postal service was established.
The region around Nowra is a farming community, sustaining a thriving dairy industry and a number of State forests, but is also increasingly a retirement and leisure area for Canberra and Sydney. The naval air station HMAS Albatross is located about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) south-west of Nowra.
The Churches in Nowra are a mix of the modern and old and classic. The Two United and Anglican Churches are traditional and 100 year old buildings
The visitor will leave Nowra with the feeling; what might have been!!!!
Certainly a nice place for lunch or even a stay over.
