The Beautiful Southern Highlands


I love the Southern Highlands. It somewhere I’ve explored often with my camera.

Bowral is the largest town in the Southern Highlands and is approximately 80 minutes drive from Sydney.

The colours of the leaves were spectacular…so rich and intense. We pulled over many times on the side of the road just to photograph the beautiful trees.

We explored Bowral itself, went up to the lookout above town and then spent an hour or so wandering through an ‘open garden’….such a fabulous way to spend a Sunday 🙂

We continued on to the Kangaroo Valley which is so green…We had our lunch on a rug beside the Hampden Bridge (Australia’s oldest suspension bridge built in the 1890’s)..

I loved the bridge and the glorious river below….

We then made a quick stop at Berry for a cappuccino on the way home…

What a great day…enjoy the pics 🙂

  1. [Soft laughter!] And now you are within 40 kms of current home 🙂 ! Altho’ I miss the hustle and bustle of Sydney I have to admit this is a beautiful area. You have captured it perfectly, having that gift I have noticed before of ‘Talking to the trees’ – I so love your tree trunks, and, in this instance, that row of cedars! Thank you! And next time you come, make time to sit very quietly on the ground awhile – hopefully you will be lucky to see some of the fabulous birdlife here . . .
