Journey through the vibrant food landscape of this beautiful region
Over the past few months, I’ve made my way to the Southern Highlands in New South Wales, Australia, more than once. What draws me to this region again and again? It is a spectacular and abundant place. With rich soils and dynamic climate, it is home to a multitude of artisan producers who supply the network of people who love to cook with quality local food. Our Southern Highland experiences are a journey through the vibrant food landscape of this beautiful region.
If you plan to visit NSW, I’d strongly recommend you consider including the Southern Highlands to your travel itinerary. Why make the detour from Sydney, Canberra or Wollongong? If the charming surroundings, tour-worthy private gardens, vivacious residents, and inspirational local enterprise aren’t enough to lure you, then the food surely will.
I hope we get a chance to introduce you to the hidden treasures we’ve found in this part of the world soon.
