A short drive south of Sydney lies the rural beauty of the Southern Highlands, blessed with a delightful, relaxing charm that’s perfect for a getaway. With its country inns, gorgeous heritage townships as well as abundant bushland, it’s a perennial favourite for those looking for respite from the city.
Dotted with beautiful country towns, there are many places to stay in the highlands, whether it be in a fine old country manor or a snug Bed and Breakfast.
Berrima, for example, is a Georgian village perfect for a romantic winter weekend escape, while Bowral is famed for its gardens and the world-renowned Bradman Museum and International Cricket Hall of Fame.
Then there’s Robertson, a tranquil rural idyll that was used as the setting for the film Babe. And Bundanoon is a quaint and cosy village, with abundant old world charm and access to the bushwalks of the beautiful Morton National Park.
Situated just beyond the city limits, the green hills and country hospitality of the Southern Highlands awaits.Southern Highlands on VisitNSW.com
