Bowral has all the convenience of a big city but without the fuss, noise or pollution. Many of its residents have embarked on a ‘Tree Change’ and traded in their city life for the country lifestyle. It is the perfect place for a country escape and with accommodation ranging from hotels and motels to B&Bs and a resort, there is accommodation to suit every traveller’s needs.
Bowral is a nature lover's paradise with massed plantings of annuals and perennials that flower in three seasons.

This quaint town is most famous for its annual Tulip Time event held every September to October which attracts thousands of visitors each year.
