Follow me down the garden path to... Bowral, a sleepy town in the New South Wales Southern Highlands. A charming country town just 90 minutes’ drive from Sydney’s CBD and the perfect destination to escape the daily grind of the city. This sleepy country town is one of the biggest in the Southern Highlands, and boasts some amazing retreats for a some personal TLC.

My favourite things to do and see
We stayed at the Milton Park Country House Hotel & Spa and centred most of our activities around the estate. Playing tennis in the mornings, laying out on the grass reading a book, exploring the extensive grounds and gardens or pampering ourselves at the day spa. By the late afternoon it was all about playing a game of pool and having a drink by the fire before dinner. Our time at Milton Park truly was one of rest and relaxation.

My favourite spot to eat
Bowral is known for its mix of great food experiences including a great range of wineries. During our time we enjoyed meals at Horderns Fine Dining Room in the Milton Park estate, Biota Dining and Bistro Officina.
