Nature around Robertson
Robertson is known as the âgreen heart of the Highlands' for a good reason â it's always green. Rich, fertile soil and abundant rural farmland make up Robertson's scenic landscape. It serves as a gateway to some of the State's best waterfalls.
This pretty, historic agricultural town was the setting for the film Babe. Situated at the top of Macquarie Pass amid rolling green hills, Robertson is 128 km south of Sydney and a favourite stop for travellers driving a loop through the Southern Highlands and Illawarra. Book your accommodation at Robertson's Fountaindale Grand Manor or the Lloran Log Cabins.
There are plenty of things to see and do here, too. Visit the Robertson Cheese Factory, where you can indulge in locally made cheese and gourmet products. Stop for a photo at the Big Potato, a tribute to this Country NSW town's agricultural heritage, and the Robertson Pie Shop, famous for its savoury and sweet pies.
If you're interested in local history, the Robertson Heritage Railway Station has a museum, gallery and picnic pavilions to explore. Also, nature lovers will enjoy Belmore Falls, which drop 100 metres into the Barrengarry Creek Valley.
If you're a cricket fan, don't miss the Cricket Legends tour.
