Including Escape Southern Highlands



The house behind the gallery
A Georgian-style house in Berrima provides the perfect backdrop for its owners’ art and furniture, and was built with an adjoining art gallery.

In her nature
Photo media artist Tamara Dean’s High Jinks in the Hydrangeas will be the inaugural exhibition at Ngununggula, Southern Highlands Regional Gallery, when it opens in September. She tells us how she has created her other-worldly works.

White hot
Meet Paralympian skiers Sam Tait and Melissa Perrine, one of the top five female para-alpine skiers in the world, who are both from the Highlands and training to compete at Beijing 2022.\

Layered with love
A sloping one acre block in Robertson would have proved daunting for many gardeners, but Bev and Glen Murray used the landscape to create an exceptional garden.

Finders, keepers
Who do we think we are? When it comes to people and places of the Southern Highlands, many answers can be found at the Berrima District Historical and Family History Society.

Rebuild reboot
When the owners of a Bundanoon house destroyed in the 2019/2020 fires decided to rebuild, both the original builder and architect came out of retirement.
