BOWRAL SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS N.S.W.

BOWRAL
. What a lovely part of New South Wales this is here in the southern highlands.Located 130 kilometers from Sydney ,Bowral has always been popular for its mild summer temperatures. Many of the early English aristocracy moved out here to avoid the oppressingly hot summers in the city...but ,for every up there's a down...Bowral gets extremely cold in the winter months. There is a locally known site where a huge rock overlooks the town and locals called it " GIB" after Gibralter so they say.The place gets it name from the aboriginal name of "bowrel" which they named after the rock.
The town is really attractive to many Sydney siders on the weekends.The town has some interesting attractions and is very popular with visitors. The town has a real "English" look about it with its little shops stately old houses and beautiful attended gardens. This surely must be a pretty place to live.

BOWRAL HOME OF THE "DON" THE MIGHTY DON BRADMAN

It goes without saying that a multitude of visitors come to Visit the "Bradman Cricket Oval" in the summer months and watch a game of cricket also to visit the Bradman Cricket Museum...This is a wonderful museum with loads of memorabilia for the cricket lover and enthusiast. I must say that my girls enjoyed visiting this museum and its place in Australian sporting history.Although having been born in the southern New South Wales town of Cootamundra Don Bradman grew up in Bowral and this is where he learnt to hit the ball. This is where he practiced with a single cricket stump and a golf ball.
