The Southern Highlands sits 500m above sea level on the great dividing range of NSW and offers an incredibly diverse landscape. Once the sea floor, the area is characterised by its sandstone escarpment walls with microclimate rainforests in the southeast and native scrub dry sclerophyll forests in the northwest. Explore hiking trails, taste bush foods, swim in waterfalls, cycle through vast forests or take in the view from above. The Shoalhaven offers complimentary coastal bush luxury camping sites as well as several key locations in picturesque Kangaroo Valley. We also operate in the Australia Capital Territory with a vast network of key locations to offer a diverse range of outdoor terrain options.

We can offer glamping retreats in private wilderness areas, vineyards or can find the right private property or accommodation partner for your stay.

Day Tours of the Southern Highlands

Halfway between Sydney and Canberra, the Southern Highlands is the perfect region for a day trip or overnight stay as part of your inbound itinerary. This picturesque part of NSW, only 75 minutes from Sydney, offers a vast array of unique Australian wilderness and wildlife experiences, a booming agri-tourism industry for award winning cellar door, farm stay or paddock to plate culinary escapes and either private retreat, outdoor or luxury hotel accommodation. We operate day tours to the region with transfers to and from Sydney or Canberra with our sister company Wild Food Adventures.

We understand the cultural and religious nuances that need to be observed, the vital role of bilingual guides and the impact on creating the right experience for the right group from our catalogue of options.

The Southern Highlands know locally as the Wingecarribee shire, is environmentally unique. It consists of warm temperate rainforests, tall woodland communities, sprawling farmland, award-winning vineyards, spectacular sandstone gorges and wild rivers. Associated with this complex geography is a biodiversity of flora and fauna not often seen in the one location. In short, the region is magical and together we can build an itinerary that those attending will never forget.
