Bowral, in the New South Wales Southern Highlands, is approximately 107 km south of Sydney, at the base of Mount Gibraltar. Grand gardens, historic estates and manor houses are a reminder of its history as a retreat for Sydney’s well-to-do.
Bowral is also home to the Bradman Museum, now The International Cricket Hall of Fame, which celebrates the life and sporting achievements of cricketer, Sir Donald Bradman.
Famous for its gardens, Bowral hosts the annual Tulip-Time Festival in Spring each year. At less than ninety minutes from both Sydney and Canberra, it’s possible to do in a day trip but better as if you stop over. There are plenty of accommodation options below.
