Due to the jobs I’ve had (and because I love it), I’ve done a lot of travelling internationally. But in recent years due to family commitments I’ve done a lot less and much close to home. It’s been really great seeing more of Australia.
As I write this, I’m sitting in Sydney airport on my way home from Bowral in the NSW Southern Highlands. A friend moved there and we popped down from Byron Bay to visit her for the weekend. I’ve never been to the Southern Highlands before and wow, it is beautiful. The gardens, the houses and the little towns - all gorgeous.
We walked around the bush land at Fitzroy Falls. We rode bikes to the next little town. We visited antique shops. We drank freshly brewed coffee and ate lovely meals in places with gorgeous views. Such a lovely trip (except for the delay out of Sydney due to the high winds. I’m a nervous flier at the best of time – high winds don’t help)

Two weeks earlier, I flew to Adelaide to visit another friend. A group of ten of us rode mountain bikes from the top of Mount Lofty to the coast. Forty kilometres!!! Nearly killed me and was really quite scary coming down the mountain’s rocky bush tracks. But, a great sense of achievement when it was all over.
So, where should I go next? I’d love some recommendations of great places to visit in this amazing country.
