Nature getaways in the Southern Highlands

Lush countryside, pretty gardens and national parks make the Southern Highlands the perfect country getaway.

Start with bushwalking in Morton National Park along a 1.6km track to see spectacular Fitzroy Falls or follow the 3.5 km East Rim Walking Track and you'll enjoy excellent views along the way.

In Kangaroo Valley, kayaking along the upper reaches of the Kangaroo River is lots of fun - stop along the way for a riverside picnic.

From Bowral it's a short drive to the top of Mount Gibraltar where you can admire the local area from lookouts, picnic spots and short walking tracks.

Enjoy an easy ride on the Bong Bong Cycle Track, along the Wingecarribee River, or follow the Gibbergunyah Forest walk from Bowral to Mittagong.
