Our tours and getaways are about connecting our guests to people, places and the produce that make living in the Highlands, Shoalhaven and regions around Canberra, unique. Life in country NSW is seasonal so what better way to maintain that connection with our guests when they return home, then sharing the locally grown, wild and foraged food that we eat. Enjoy.
