About Milton

A charming historic town in the Shoalhaven region, Milton will delight lovers of fine wine and good food, antique hunters and heritage admirers. A great base for bushwalkers too, as Milton is near spectacular Pigeon House Mountain, named by Captain James Cook in 1770 during his first voyage when he was a lieutenant.

Surrounded by verdant farmlands, Milton’s food and wine experiences are delectable - fresh produce, elegant wines, a microbrewery, a classic country pub, relaxing cafes and quality restaurants. St Isidore is an award-winning restaurant featured in The Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide.
