    I found this an interesting pkace although overpriced. Even though they advertised a cafe, it apparently closed about a year ago

    A great place to wander through. So much to see and experience. Option to dine in the cafe . Parking onsite. A real mix of old and new. Lots to spend your money on…

    For older Australians in particular, this place is a must-visit. On our previous visits to the area this home wasn't open to the public so we were delighted to be able to view it. The tour of the interior was fascinating and our guide Stephen brought the history to life. It was also very pleasant to wander through the extensive gardens. This is probably not the place for children but those familiar with Anthony Hordern and James Fairfax will be intrigued.

    It was only a brief visit because it was not open due to the nsw lockdown restrictions. We took some photos and lingered around the sight.

    Loved the Festival of Lights. Beautiful light displays and great to see a number of families enjoying the lights. Well done.

    Interesting little place with great food. Something for the entire family here. Fast, efficient service and staff who care about the customers and are genuinely glad to see them.

    Lots of other art & craft things to see and do here too.

    Highly recommended.

    Excellent gallery and warm, friendly staff. The exhibits rotate every 3 months. The current theme of exhibits is very thought provoking on how much suffering has been unleashed on to our First Australians. Lovely experience for couple of hours. The cafe was also excellent.

    We were eager to find this as I am a rail enthusiast but upon arriving in Braemar we couldn't find it as it has moved to Bowral its meant to be a great set up so next time we are in the highlands will search more

    A wonderful little cottage tucked away from the Main Street of Bowral. Each room is unique with various artwork 🖼 on display be it paintings 🖼 sculptures, which are also placed in strategic areas outside 👍🏻 to be admired alongside the gardens 😃 all workmanship is done by local artisans throughout the district of the southern highlands/ there are exhibitions held here as well. Cosy and very pleasant volunteers who are able to help.
