THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS

GARDENS, HIKES & ACTIVITIES

Exquisite gardens, rugged landscapes and lush natural scenery have always been the Southern Highlands main drawcard. While the region is blessed with some of Australia's best private formal gardens, it also showcases an array of half-day and full-day hikes and outdoor activities for nature-lovers. Whether you are planning your next picnic, waterfall adventure, outdoor activity or want to stroll through the manicured gardens of some of the Highlands oldest manors, we have selected our top picks below.
*Due to COVID19, many of the formal and open Gardens are not open for viewing at this time.
When they reopen we will share some of our favourite formal gardens.
