Enjoy a gourmet break in Bowral
Bowral, the largest town in the Southern Highlands, retains much of the grandeur of its days as a summer retreat for well-to-do residents of Sydney. Known for its spectacular gardens, including Corbett Gardens, it is home to one of the region’s most beautiful parks and the sight of the annual Tulip Festival held each September. Bowral is also a gourmet getaway destination, specialising in fresh produce and cool climate wines. Visit the cellar door at Centennial Vineyards and dine at acclaimed local restaurants such as Biota, Onesta, Cucina, and Ludo. The town also has more than its fair share of galleries and antique stores that are well worth browsing. A wine tasting tour of local vineyards with Grape Escape is never a bad idea.
