"Mittagong" Mittagong by iandsmith

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.
- Pros:Some good shopping and some nice history
- Cons:Cold in winter
- In a nutshell:Nice place to spend some time
As Mittagong sits atop the escarpment, many waterfalls are within easy driving range. Notable among them are Fitzroy... more travel advice
This shop first caught my eye because of the distinctive quoins in the architecture. It secondly came to my notice... more travel advice
