Considered a country region, the Southern Highlands is known for its abundance of heritage buildings, historic landmarks and natural wonders.

Adored by many for its ‘old world charm’, the main townships of Bowral, Mittagong and Moss Vale have a variety of antiques stores, boutiques, country markets, open gardens and trendy cafes to explore. Bowral is also known for its landmark attractions Bradman Oval- home to famous cricketer Don Bradman and Corbett Gardens, the location of the annual Tulip Time Festival.

Or just 10kms from Bowral is the quaint town of Historic Berrima. Home to historical buildings such as the Berrima Gaol and Courthouse and Harpers Mansion, Berrima is a village that thrives with heritage.

The Southern Highlands is also known for its cool climate wines. So when in this region, a tour and taste of some of the region’s award winning blends is a must!
