"Mittagong" Mittagong by iandsmith

Mittagong Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 15 photos

Gone, but not forgotten

It's a bit sad really. I can still remember when the Hume Highway used to go through Mittagong. I can still remember the traffic holdups and why they had to build the new freeway.
One thing I can also remember is that where the road used to split in two, there was a memorial. It's still there, hasn't changed except for a new coat of paint.
It's odd in a way. The bypassing is probably what's saved Mittagong and Berrima. Now people come because they want to be there, not because they're passing through. Hence the boost in tourist traffic over the ensuing years.

    Funny thing, Ian, I've just been down there myself this weekend! Great page and brings it right back - missed the bookshop, but Pauline found the quilt shop (and I retreated for coffee).

    Another stellar page with quality photographs and "hard-not-to-read-every-word" narratives. Impressive waterfalls, architecture, but, I'd visit just to find the book store!
