About The Southern Highlands

Rugged mountain ranges, impressive limestone caves, plunging waterfalls combined with rolling green hillsides reminiscent of the 'English Countryside' blend together to give the Southern Highlands it's unique character.

Bowral is probably the most well known town in the Southern Highlands. Founded in the 1860's it soon became a summer retreat for the wealthy Sydney residents who have left a legacy of stately mansions and spacious grounds of manicured gardens containing European deciduous and evergreen trees, exotic plants and flowering annuals. Many famous celebrities include actors, musicians, artists, designers, athletes and some of Australia's biggest business magnates call the Southern Highlands home. Examples include Michael Clarke, Alan Jones, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Jimmy Barnes, John Olsen, Gai and Rob Waterhouse and many more!

Vineyards, olive groves, horse studs, and orchards are dotted around the landscape. With many local vineyards now having reached international acclaim, the Southern Highlands of NSW has become one of the premium wine regions in Australia.

If you're into great food and great coffee then the Southern Highlands is your absolute heaven. Choices range from cosy cafes to award winning hatted restaurants and everything in between.

Regular markets held throughout the Southern Highlands offer a diverse range of goods including farm fresh, organic produce, wine, art, crafts, locally made furniture, and much more.
