South Highlands NSW Accommodation
The Southern Highlands, also locally referred to as the Highlands, is a geographical region and district in New South Wales, Australia and is 110 km south-west of Sydney. The entire region is under the local government area of the Wingecarribee Shire. The region is also considered a wine region.
The region specifically is the area centred on the commercial towns of Mittagong, Bowral, Moss Vale, Bundanoon and Robertson as well as the historic town of Berrima. Smaller villages like Burradoo, Sutton Forest, Colo Vale, Avoca, Yerrinbool, Exeter, Welby and many more that make up the Wingecarribee Shire are spread in between and around these main centres and serve mostly as residential areas.
The Highlands geographically sits between 500 m and 900 m above sea level on the Great Dividing Range. Like other regions along this plateau such as the Blue Mountains to the north and the Australian Alps to the south, the Southern Highlands is known for its cool temperate climate.
The Southern Highlands as a region is part of the larger Capital Country Region with the Highlands forming the northern part of the region and the Southern Tablelands forming the southern part of the region.
THE GUMS – NEW ‘OFF-GRID’ LUXURY
Connecting with ‘the land’ and nature is an increasingly popular escape for city families caught up in urban life’s hustle and bustle.So get off the grid, just one hour from Sydney, at ‘Elouera Vale’ Farm, Mittagong. The owners of Elouera Vale have created a new (completed Dec ’21), cosy, luxury, off the grid, private retreat for couples to relax and enjoy peace (as well as the delights of the Southern Highlands).
WHITE GUM FOREST RETREAT
We are 1 hour from Sydney, 15 minutes from the freeway, but feels like “the middle of nowhere”!!
Our farm was once part of a much larger dairy farm settled for over 100 years and still has remnants of the original building foundations.
This is a nature corridor with abundance of wildlife as well as a working property – we have camels (gotta love them), banded galloways, dorper sheep and Wiltipol sheep.
Your campsite is nestled in a white gum forest, not far from a beautiful trickling creek. There is a small dam near campsites for water supply for showers where required.
Enjoy the evenings warming yourself around your campfire as you relax under the stars.
