Things to do in the Southern Highlands

Planning a trip to the Southern Highlands? Check out these great things to do and see, including an enjoyable tasting at the Southern Highlands best cellar door.


Bush walking is a very popular activity in the Southern Highlands. There is a number of great walks you can do. Put on your walking shoes and take on the steep 2km Erith Coal Mine Track in Morton National Park. If you are after some amazing views of Bowral and Mittagong, take a walk through Mount Gibraltar Reserve and check out the three unique lookouts from there. If this doesn’t take your fancy, perhaps packing a picnic and exploring the areas three biggest waterfalls. Fitzroy, Belmore and Carrington are absolutely beautiful and well worth the trip to.


Sir Donald Bradman is famous in cricketing across the globe, and what better way to explore the story of his life than in his hometown of Bowral. Make sure you stop at the International Cricket Hall of Fame during you visit to the Southern Highlands.


Take a tour through the historical town of Berrima and stop for a memorable lunch at Josh’s Café. It’s a bustling business with a growing reputation. The café offers a menu of delicious modern Mediterranean dishes and of course, Tertini wines.


If you are a keen antique shopper you’ll love the Southern Highlands shopping scene. There are a number of antique shops in the surrounding towns full with great quirky finds and unique furniture pieces. We recommend stopping for afternoon tea and exploring the warehouse market at Dirty Janes in Bowral.


The Southern Highlands wine trail includes 12 cellar doors and showcases the best cool climate wines. The Southern Highlands best cellar door, Tertini Wines, prides themselves on delivering a memorable and unique tasting experience for all their customers. You’ll sample a premium range of small batch, award wining wines as well as our rare Italian varieties.  The cellar door is open 7 days a week, 10am to 5pm.


Take yourself on a food safari and book a table at Biota Dining in Bowral. It’s a challenging menu that will surprise you in a delightful way. The eco-friendly restaurant sources all its ingredients locally or grows it, and showcases some extraordinary technique. If you are up for a cocktail or two you wont be disappointed with their handcrafted botanical based cocktail menu whilst sitting next to a beautiful fire.
