The central NSW town of Cowra is at the heart of an important agricultural region, providing vast quantities of wheat, cattle, and wool to the wider world. The region’s fifth largest crop is canola, which blooms in vivid yellow fields and creates stunning scenery. Cowra also has historic significance as the location of the WWII prisoner-of-war camp and its infamous breakout of 1944.

Cowra Shire Council commissioned a set of shire boundary signs to welcome visitors into the region. The design harmonises with the landscape, suggesting canola, wheat fields and weathered timber, with metallic and perforated panels bringing a modern slant. One of the signs was required to be frangible.

The Wiradjuri people are acknowledged on the sign as the traditional owners of the land.
