If you are looking for a change of scenery, the Southern Highlands offers an idyllic getaway. Located between Sydney and Canberra, the Southern Highlands offers picturesque landscapes and historic country towns with an array of cafes, restaurants and activities to enjoy.
The Southern Highlands region is specifically centered on the commercial towns of Bowral, Mittagong, Moss Vale, Robertson and Bundanoon, with a number of smaller towns such as Burradoo making up the region. A great way to take in all of the sights is to choose from a number of tourist drives that will take you through historic townships, Morton National Park, to cellar doors and galleries.
An ideal time to visit the Southern Highlands is in September when Tulip Time is in full swing. Located in Bowral, the largest town in the Highlands, Tulip Time is the largest annual floral festival in NSW South of Sydney. With beautiful flowers, market stalls, a street parade and entertainment, there is something on offer for all ages. If you are searching for a retreat from city life, sales agents Bowral and nearby sales agents Burradoo can provide you with the break you need. As well as Tulip Time, Bowral is also home to The Bradman Centre (a must see for any cricket fan), a range of eateries, wineries and boutique shops, making Bowral an ideal getaway anytime of year. For those interested in architecture, real estate Burradoo offers a mix of historical manors and large architectural homes with beautifully manicured gardens.
During the cooler months, the Southern Highlands is also home to the traditional Scottish Highland Games. The Scottish cultural festival is run annually in April, where the town of Bundanoon is transformed into Brigadoon. Once again catering to those of all ages, Brigadoon is a great family friendly day outing with large band parades, Scottish dancing and highland games running throughout the day.
If you are after a more permanent change of scenery, perhaps sales agents Moss Vale will be able to assist you. Known as the Southern Highland’s rural center, Moss Vale has livestock sale yards, farmers markets and agricultural shows. The highlight of Moss Vale would be the Leighton Gardens which must be seen during Autumn or Spring.
For a change of scenery and change of pace, you should definitely consider the Southern Highlands for your next getaway. Catering to young and old, there is something for everyone.
