Cowra Tourism Corporation will this year run tours of local canola fields, with two hour Fields of Gold Tours being opened to tourists and locals starting in September. Tours will include guided tours of canola and countryside near Cowra, including commentary with general information about canola, as well as photo opportunities at designated canola hot spots, and a canola ‘goodies bag’ and a take home fact sheet.
The tours will depart from the Cowra Visitor Information Centre, and according to the Cowra Tourism Corporation, tickets for these tours have already been selling fast. Assistant Tourism Manager Andrew Grinter said locals and tourists alike love paddocks of canola crops in flower. “Tourists love the intense yellow of this crop and are interested in learning more about how the crop is grown and the oil produced from the seed when harvested,” he said.
“The tours are a great way for people to see our beautiful countryside in an easy and enjoyable way.” The Fields of Gold Tours will be conducted by Cowra Tourism Corporation with Cowra Bus Service and will be operating on Saturdays and Sundays throughout September and early October.
