Beautiful Bundanoon is a historic town in the New South Wales Southern Highlands region. Resting on the edge of the impressive Great Dividing Range, Bundanoon’s landscape is a mix of natural beauty and old world charm.
Located 152 kilometres south of Sydney, Bundanoon may be smaller than neighbouring Moss Vale, Kangaroo Valley, and Robertson, but is still a popular country getaway for Sydneysiders and weekend explorers. While tourists have been flocking to the area since the early 1920s, Bundanoon’s history began at least 100 years before then, when explorer Charles Throsby first mentioned the area of Bantanoon, which is an Aboriginal word meaning place of deep gullies. Today, Bundanoon is a thriving country township and the fourth largest residential area in the Southern Highlands.
Along with its charming cafes, antique shops, guesthouses and country retreats, Bundanoon’s proximity to breathtaking natural parks is what keeps visitors coming year after year. As the northern gateway to the stunning Morton National Park, Bundanoon visitors can experience hours and hours of exploration through the gigantic park, taking in magnificent vistas of the cascading Fitzroy Falls or enjoying a bushwalk along the Pigeon House Mountain Didthul walking track.
If you’re visiting Bundanoon in April, don’t miss an opportunity to experience authentic Scottish culture at the annual Bundanoon Highland Gathering – aka Brigadoon – the largest Highland festival in Australia.
