Nestled at the base of Mount Gibraltar, Bowral is famous for its country gardens and fields of tulips in spring. Just 115 kilometres south west of Sydney, Bowral has always been a fashionable holiday destination for Sydneysiders. Stunning private gardens, part of grand old estates, are a delight in spring and autumn while shopping experiences are varied - from antiques to homewares, jewellery, arts and crafts. A highlight for cricket fans is the Sir Donald Bradman Oval and the International Cricket Hall of Fame. Outdoor sports include fly-fishing on the lake or golf at one of the town's excellent courses.
