town on the Murray River, New South Wales, Australia. Immediately on the opposite side of the Murray River, in Victoria, is the twin town of Wahgunyah. Corowa was established in 1858. The Corowa Conference in 1893 marked an important point in the movement for federation of the Australian colonies. Situated in a section of the Riverina that produces wool, wheat, cattle, and fruits, Corowa has flour mills, timber mills, malt and stock-feed processing plants, and wineries. Lying just off the Murray Valley and Riverina highways, the town has air and rail connections with Sydney (312 miles [502 km] northeast) and Melbourne. Corowa was proclaimed a town in 1885; it became a shire in 1955 and a municipality in 1963. Pop. (2006) 5,628.
