In 2010, Margaret River was home to the world-wide phenomenon of Cow Parade.
Cow Parade has beenﾠstaged in over 79 cities worldwide since 1999 including New York City (2000), London (2002), Tokyo (2003), Prague (2004), Mexico City (2005), Milan (2007), Hong Kong (2013),ﾠand Shanghai (2014).
Artists are invited to paint a life size replica cow in any way they see fit. The cows are then displayed around the town prior to being auctioned off to raise funds for charity.
One of the most popular cows was Rump On A Stump, a tongue-in-cheek take off of a similar statue at one of the nearby wineries. The statue was purchased by the town and has remained where it was first displayed in the Memorial Park in the heart of Cowaramup where anyone driving through towards Margaret River can’t miss it.
