Experiences

ESCAPE THE CITY

There’s no shortage of things to do in the Southern Highlands. Whether you’re a nature lover, food fanatic, or simply looking for a place to unwind, you’re spoiled for choice in this rugged region of NSW. 

Osborn House is surrounded by glorious countryside and quaint market towns. You can take a map and head out on a walk through the town or borrow our bicycles and explore the neighbouring  villages and towns. 

We have a lovely list of recommendations for our guests to explore; just ask our Experiences Team once you are here.

Morton National Park

Staying at Osborn House, you don’t have to travel far to experience the wonders of one of the most scenic spots in the Highlands—Morton National Park sits at your doorstep.

Pristine bushland, stunning waterfalls, panoramic lookout points and a bounty of Australian wildlife await. Explore the remote wilderness on one of the many walking trails, or hike to the majestic 80 metre waterfall, Fitzroy Falls, and watch in awe.

Historic Towns

The highlands is a region steeped in history, with heritage listed homesteads, bountiful gardens, and boutique shopping strips preserved perfectly in time.

Previously named Jordan’s Crossing, Bundanoon was officially established in 1881, and retains all the charm of an old-world, rustic country town. Outside of Bundanoon, nearby towns like Bowral, Mittagong and Berrima all deserve a visit.

Food and Wine. Where to begin?

Perhaps close to home, at Bundanoon’s local Italian restaurant, Bottega B Ristorante. There’s also Potter’s Pantry for brunch, or Jumping Rock cafe for an alfresco meal. Twenty minutes drive from Osborn House you’ll find the small town of Berrima, but even more importantly, you’ll find the modern Australian restaurant Eschalot, housed inside a stone cottage. 

Another ten minutes on the road and you’ll arrive in Bowral, perhaps Southern Highlands’ most renowned suburb. Endless food options await along Bowral’s main strip, Bong Bong St, including Bendooley Estate Larder and Cheese and Gumnut Patisserie.

Time for a drink?

As a wine growing region, The Southern Highlands is relatively new to the grape growing business. Here, most vineyards are less than 20 years old, but you’d never guess it by the taste. Cool nights and warm days provide the perfect conditions to produce some premium varieties, particularly Pinot Noir. There are currently over 15 cellar doors peppered through the region, including Cherry Tree Hill vineyard, Artemis Wines, and Tractorless Vineyard.

The Southern Highlands also happens to be home to one of the only single malt whisky distilleries in the world who grow their own barley onsite, Joadja Distillery. Still thirsty? Head back to your suite for a night cap care of our ultra-luxe mini bar.
