Southern Highlands Tours

Southern Highlands
The Southern Highlands of New South Wales are a combination of natural sites, including mountains, caves, and waterfalls, and quaint villages filled with historic homes and heritage sites. Visitors to the area can picnic, hike, or bike through Morton National Park or enjoy a leisurely afternoon in the Corbett Gardens of Bowral. Alternatively, visit the many historic manors and mansions that dot the small towns like Berrima, Bundanoon, and Bungendore. Charming cafes and traditional pubs round out the experience. 

The rolling green hills of the Southern Highlands are home to cooler temperatures, with ideal conditions for producing wine. A handful of excellent vineyards are open for tours and tastings. Whether you’re exploring the outdoors — the Fitzroy Falls, Illawarra Fly Tree Top Walk, Wombeyan Caves, to name a few — or soaking in the historic ambiance of small, old towns, the Southern Highlands provides a contrast to the bustle of urban life in Sydney.

Practical Info

The Southern Highlands can be found approximately 1.5 hours southwest of Sydney. Often the climate is much cooler than Sydney’s. There is a visitor center located off Old Hume Highway in Mittagong.
Address: Southern Highlands, NSW, Australia, Australia

Sip n Savour: Southern Highlands Premium Wine Tour from Sydney

Sip n Savour: Southern Highlands Premium Wine Tour from Sydney

star-5
Sip and savour the best of the Southern Highlands wine region, an easy 90 minute drive from Sydney. The Southern Highlands has developed a reputation as one of the most exciting young wine regions in Australia. Best known for cool-climate varieties, particularly pinot noir, riesling and chardonnay, the area’s winemakers have expanded the range to include lesser-known grapes too. Even now, as the more established wineries enter their third decade, relative newcomers continue to join the party. And what better way to start a party than with a glass of Southern Highlands bubbles? During the day sample wines from three of the most highly-rated wineries in the Southern Highlands and enjoy a hearty lunch at Australia’s oldest continuously licensed inn. Have a group of 6 or more? Contact Local Travel Planner to arrange a private tour.
