Home of the Gundungurra and Dharawal people, The Southern highlands is rich in history. Settlement began in the 1820’s with magnificent properties such as Throsby Park at Moss Vale, Oldbury at Sutton Forest, Vine Lodge at Exeter and Wingecarribee at Bowral nestled in breathtaking natural landscape.
330 heritage items are currently protected by Wingecarribee Shire. Among them, Berrima is Australia’s most well preserved Georgian-period town. Learn more here: http://www.wsc.nsw.gov.au/development/heritage.
