About Sutton Forest

Located 129 km south-west of Sydney and 5 km from Moss Vale, Sutton Forest is one of the quaint historic towns of the Southern Highlands. This small township in Country NSW is set among rolling green hills, rivers and State forests.

There are plenty of things to see and do around Sutton Forest. Visit beautiful historic houses, churches and cemeteries as well as an equestrian centre and B&B that were once colonial inns. Explore pretty gardens, and shop for antiques and country wares. Or simply take a drive down the town's meandering country lanes.

A range of quality accommodation, including self-contained cottages and B&Bs, is available, providing a good base from which to enjoy the local wineries and cellar doors or the wider Southern Highlands food and wine or antiques trails. Foodies will enjoy fine dining in nearby restaurants and can even pick their own berries in season at Montrose House and Berry Farm.

Before you visit, be sure to check the calendar for local events, such as the Southern Highlands Christmas Fair.
