A DAY IN THE Southern Highlands

Last week I was down in the Southern Highlands for a meeting. I decided to spend the rest of my day exploring, something I haven't done for a while and there was plenty to see.

The Acre on the corner of Bong Bong and Banyette Streets Bowral has a lot to offer.  The building was formerly Dirty Janes Emporium and has recently been refurbished.

It has a new Dirty Janes full of treasures and the whimsical Tea Salon. At the front there is Bespoke Letterpress, where I picked up some beautiful stationery and  The Press Shop Cafe for great coffee and food.

Harmoniously between the two sits Green Lane where you'll find The Potting Shed and Harrys Wine Bar & Bistro where we stopped for a delicious lunch - I could have sat there all afternoon people watching.

The Bronte Tram  on Wingecarribee Street is always worth a visit in store or online as well.  I am a little sad they are no longer in Bronte, Sydney.

In Mossvale Suzie Anderson Home has become a destination offering a great collection of homewares. This is one shop you will not leave without buying a special something for your home.

Next door you'll find the Highlands Merchant for when you need a coffee or something to eat.  For us it was afternoon tea time.  We enjoyed the most delicious carrot cake, sticky date pudding cake, tea and coffee.

If you're looking for something a little bit different call into Hunters & Collectors Antiques in Mittagong. 

There's also Barbaras Storehouse, they have a large range of homewares and furniture - this is the place to pick up a bargain.

Berrima is home to The Berkelouw Book Barn at Bendooley Estate known as Australias most atmospheric bookshop.

The Lolly Swagman was our last port of call to get something for the kids and the drive home..........

Needless to say we left Bowral on a high!!!!

What is your lollie of choice mine is pineapples and chocolate coated almonds.
