Vineyards, Markets & Manolo's - My Weekend In Bowral

Wine tasting, cheese platters, green hills, antique markets....tick, tick, tick and tick. Getting out of Canberra is always top of my list for the weekend, regularly heading coastal to get my ocean fix but with a family birthday to celebrate, I found myself somewhere on the other side of the mountains in a place I have never been before - Bowral. Offering all of my favourite things and only a couple of hours out of Canberra, I am not sure why I have waited so long to explore this pocket of the Southern Highlands. A little time out was exactly what I needed and Bowral did not disappoint, it was peaceful, green, quiet and refreshing - all things good for the soul.
