Well known for its climate, with four distinctive seasons, picturesque landscape and vibrant shopping centres, its easy to see why the Southern Highlands is the perfect area in which to retire. Bowral, the largest of the Southern Highlands towns, is home to an eclectic array of restaurants, coffee shops, wineries, country markets, literary events, boutique shops, art galleries and a four-screen movie theatre.

A short drive will take you to the towns of Moss Vale and Mittagong where you will find more eateries and wineries, amazing home ware shops, antique markets, a playhouse and the civic centre. Driving on a little further and you will discover a plethora of small villages, the “hidden gems” for which the Southern Highlands is renowned, Berrima, Burrawang, Exeter, Kangaloon, Avoca, Bundanoon and Sutton Forest to name a few. Tree lined country lanes, quirky local pubs and magnificent secret gardens are amongst the treasures that you’ll encounter. You never know what you’ll find around a corner and you most certainly won’t ever tire of the landscapes!
