Cows, Cows And More Cows

One of the tourist attractions in the Margaret River Region is Cowaramup. Originally the town derived its name (boringly) from the Cowaramup Siding, which was located near the townsite, on the now disused Busselton to Augusta railway. The name is believed to be derived from Aboriginal word Cowara, meaning Purple-crowned Lorikeet. Locals from the region often refer to the town as “Cowtown”, a reference to the use of “cow” in the town’s name and its history of dairy farming. And now the local authorities have gone to town using the cow theme throughout the town – you will understand when you look at the pics.
