Southern Highlands GardenOnly one and a half hours south-west of Sydney on the freeway, and about the same distance from Canberra, the Southern Highlands lies atop the Great Dividing Range, 700 metres and more above sea level. With a climate that is usually mild in summer and cold in winter has much to attract the visitor.

First settled by Europeans in the 1820s, the Highlands consist of part of the Wingecarribee Shire with over 20 villages clustered around the major towns of Bowral, Mittagong and Moss Vale. It is surrounded by bushland and national park areas.

Some of the towns and villages include Avoca, Berrima, Bong Bong, Bowral, Braemar, Bundanoon, Burradoo, Burrawang, Canyonleigh, Colo Vale, Exeter, Fitzroy Falls, Joadja, Kangaloon, Mittagong, Moss Vale, Penrose, Robertson, Sutton Forest, and Wingello.

Tulips - Southern Highlands NSWWith its four distinct seasons, the Southern Highlands is famous for its gardens. During spring the region is bursting with colour displays of annual and perennial flowers and bulbs, and the widespread plantings of European trees, many over a century old. That's not to say there are no native plants, as they too are in full bloom. The seasons are well celebrated by thousands of local gardeners, with access to some spectacular private gardens, especially during the annual Bowral Tulip Time Festival.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.

Southern Highlands Events

• New South Wales Events
Bundanoon is Brigadoon
• April
• The Bundanoon Highland Gathering is one of the world's largest annual ‘Highland Gatherings’.

After the mists have risen at dawn, the town of Bundanoon becomes Brigadoon for a day (even the name on the station changes to Brigadoon!). The main street is closed and there is a bustle of activity as people prepare for the big parade.
