South Coast

The Southern Highlands region lies to the south west of Sydney on top of the escarpment overlooking the South Coast. It is known for its picturesque towns, gracious and historic mansions and public buildings, as well as its genteel lifestyle.

The region offers a wide range of services and facilities for all tastes and budgets, in its main towns of MossVale, Mittagong, Bowral, Berrima, Bundanoon and Robertson. These delightful rural towns are all within minutes of each other.

As well as the comfortable surroundings in the towns, the region boasts many beautiful and spectacular natural attractions to delight the visitor. The Wombeyan Caves, Mt Gibraltar and the Fitzroy Falls are some of the best known of these attractions.

The area has differing landscapes ranging from rolling pasturelands to forested mountains.
Other notable features of this region include a large selection of craft and antique stores, the annual Tulip Festival held in Bowral, the historic jail at Berrima and a butterfly exhibition house at Mittagong.
