Things to do in Robertson and Burrawang, Southern Highlands NSW
Robertson and Burrawang are two villages located in the NSW Southern Highlands. They are famous for their potato farms, waterfalls and captivating rural beauty. They take just under two hours travel south of Sydney. This is a notable road trip that truly embraces the lush green landscape of the area.
Let me take you on a photographic journey of the region, featuring visits to the iconic Burrawang Pub for a spot of pub dining, the picturesque Belmore Falls and Carrington Falls and a must visit farm gate that every traveller who loves a good spud needs to go to.
Two of the main waterfall sites to visit are Carrington Falls and Belmore Falls. Both of these sites are located within National Parks and include some scenic bushwalking tracks to do near the falls. It's always wise to check the National Park websites before visiting to ensure there are no warnings or closures which may impact your trip.

The small township is bought to life by the historic hospitality of the Burrawang Village Hotel. Dine inside by the comforting warmth of the fireplace during the frosty seasons, or meander through the lush outdoor beer garden during the summer days.
The menu covers all the pub grub classics, served in a generous bistro style. The Burrawang Village Hotel is also a pet friendly pub in the southern highlands, perfect for those who love to bring their furred friends along for the adventure.
The must visit potato farm gate

Highland Gourmet Potatoes are a must visit stop off for anyone who appreciates a good spud. This little wooden farm gate stall is cash only, with most produce priced at $5 a bag for potatoes, and occasional other seasonal specials like plants, berries and garlic also available.

Moonacres Kitchen in Robertson creates an opportunity for diners to experience and taste the local produce with an authentic paddock to plate menu. Modern, buzzing there is always a queue waiting for table, a loaf of the iconic freshly baked bread, or a steaming cup of coffee to awaken the bleary eyed traveller.
The Moonacres Farm is only located 10minutes up the road and not only provides the produce for the restaurant, but is a favourite supplier to many of Sydney's top culinary hot spots.

Grab the camera for this one. Located in the Budderoo National Park, the views into Jamberoo and the surrounding valley are incredible. It's a quick stop off if you want easy postcard views without the hiking.
A place to stay- Old Pheasant Ground Dairy
34.6013° S, 150.6626° E
After all that exploring, you'll be needing a place to kick off those shoes, sit back and chill. The Old Pheasant Ground Dairy cottage is the ideal stay, and a bonus if you are after a pet-friendly stay. The host is so helpful and the little homely touches at this spot make you feel so welcomed. It's also minutes away from Carrington Falls, Jamberoo Lookout and a 5mins into the township of Robertson.
There are many more places to visit and enjoy in the area. I am planning a part 2, so please send through your recommendations and favourite places in the region.
