BOWRAL

Bowral is the next of the rich south highlands towns. Bowral exudes significant wealth and is a rich rural area. The highlands weather determines a rich green landscape for most of each. Just like New Zealand.

For many decades, Bowral was well-known as a rural retreat for the elite gentry of Sydney. This has left a legacy of many historical estates and manor houses. Now the town is a bustling and very busy precinct.

As with area Bowral featured in the early history of Australia and many heritage buildings to this day are on display.

Today, Bowral is nationally known as the home of Australian Cricketer Don Bradman, and the site of his tribute museum Bradman Museum at Bradman Oval.

It also hosts the annual Tulip Time Festival that is held in the town in September.

Most of the Churches in Bowral are historic and 100 year vintage and preserved.

The Anglican Church is a real classic.

The Bowral War Memorial is a simple but worthy acknowledgement.

The Bowral Hotels are a mix of old and new pub offers.The Bowral Museum is the Bradman, but there is the School Museum opposite the Anglican Church also.

Include Bowral in the south highland mix of towns and allow a number of days to enjoy the region.
