A vacation in Southern Highlands mixes leisurely pursuits with colonial history and heritage. A landscape of colorful tulip gardens, rolling hills, plunging waterfalls, and unspoiled bushland provides a suitable backdrop for pretty country towns and quaint villages. The region's biggest town, Bowral is merely 90 minutes' drive from Sidney, which makes this picturesque destination one of Sydney's favorite weekend getaways. Together with Mittagong, this romantic town forms the hearth of the region with a high concentration of top-notch restaurants and luxury accommodations. The historic village of Berrima features a striking collection of Georgian sandstone buildings and a convict-built traditional inn from 1834.
