Mittagong is very beautiful with plenty of flowers and mountainous landscape, with various things to do. The perfect time of year would be around September and October when they hold their annual Tulip Time Festival. Travelling west through the beautiful mountains from here you can also visit the limestone Wombeyan Caves, which are spectacular.
Nearby is Berrima an old town with several small art galleries and craft fairs still living in the days in which it was founded. For all those cricket fans a trip to Bowral is a must. It was home to famous cricketer Sir Donald Bradman and has its own museum dedicated to the cricketer himself.
