Tucked between the Australian Capital Territory and the South Coast of New South Wales, Braidwood takes you back to a simpler time offering regional charm and small-town hospitality for locals and visitors alike.
With a vast history as a nineteenth century goldmining town, Braidwood was the first heritage listed town in New South Wales. Brimming with colonial buildings and rustic streetscapes, the town is surrounded by the rural beauty and landscapes of the Southern Tablelands.
The main village is dotted with antique shopping, charming country pubs, historic sites with the Historic Braidwood Town Walk taking you to 54 locations of interest, and don’t forget, The Braidwood Bakery’s infamous treats and pies.
Braidwood is also renowned as a regional hub of artists and craftspeople whose creative influence has introduced many events including the Festival of Braidwood, Airing of the Quilts and Major Creek Festival. And it doesn’t stop there.
Stretching from Braidwood towards the South Coast is the beautiful Monga National Park teeming with outdoor activities like nature walks, horse riding and picnicking to keep locals and visitors busy all year round.
With excellent local schools and so much to do, Braidwood is the perfect place for families, or those looking for a tree-change in an idyllic country town.
