Spend an autumn day in the Southern Highlands. Visit the exquisite Red Cow Farm, historic Berrima and Harpers Mansion. Lunch at the Bendooley Estate.


Red Cow Farm and Berrima

In April, the Southern Highlands heritage towns and gardens are ablaze with colour. As the temperature drops, cool climate trees put on spectacular shows of red, yellow and gold. Board our bus at Beecroft and join us for a day exploring this lovely southern countryside. First stop is historic Berrima, the best preserved Georgian village in mainland Australia. Known for its excellent shopping, cafes and idyllic charming setting, Berrima is a perfect place to unwind and explore. Here too is the National Trust owned Harpers Mansion, where a local guide takes us through the garden that surrounds the 1834 mansion. At Bendooley Estate, lunch awaits us in the century old Berkelouw Book Barn. Showcasing endless rows of rare books, cathedral ceilings, king-sized iron chandeliers and astone fireplace, the space is amazing. While still relatively unknown to Sydney siders, Red Cow Farm is a garden gem and one of the Southern Highlands’ best secrets. Created by an extraordinary plantsman with a talent for creating romantic garden spaces and a passion for unusual perennials, this garden will take your breath away. It’s nearly impossibly beautiful with over 20 distinct garden spaces that flow together seamlessly. A masterful designer, Ali Mentesch, the garden’s creator will show us through the garden explaining what makes this design work so brilliantly. Stroll through the beech walk, around the lake, along overflowing borders, through the monastery garden, we guarantee you will not want to leave!
