The Southern Highlands town of Robertson offers country living at its best. Situated at the top of the magnificent Macquarie Pass on the Illawarra Highway, Robertson is within easy reach of several big centres.
A bit over 1.5 hours from Sydney via the M5 motorway, less than 2 hours from Canberra, less than an hour from Wollongong and Nowra.
Robertson is near enough for a day trip, nice enough to stay for a weekend or a week – or settle down for the rest of your life.
Four out of five Southern Highland tourists are returning visitors, and quite a few have lost their hearts and decided to move in permanently!
Robertson is surrounded by some of Australia’s best soils and richest pastures, lush, evergreen fields and rolling hills. Winding country lanes lead to no fewer than three spectacular waterfalls and rugged rainforest national parks, all just on our doorstep.
Robertson has a wide array of interesting shops, and good food on offer in cafes and in the town’s authentic country pub. There are village markets, souvenir shopping, and of course the famous Robertson Show.
Nearby villages include picturesque Burrawang and Kangaloon, and the services and attractions of the larger Southern Highland centres of Moss Vale and Bowral are just quarter of an hour away.
You name it, we have it: Highlands style country life with grand houses and gracious gardens, but also charming country cottages, working dairy and potato farms, a vibrant local business life, an active arts and crafts community and an abundance of community organisations, sports and other free time activities.
Just outside Robertson lies the Statford Park Lavender Farm, and further afield many other Southern Highland wineries, the secluded village of Kangaroo Valley, not to mention the beaches around Wollongong and Kiama. In Robertson you are both in the Highlands and close to the sea.
