Returning to the Southern Highlands is a significant painting by Louisa Atkinson, a noted botanist, journalist, novelist and artist of the mid-1900s. The watercolour entitled ‘Study of a Possum’, painted in 1860, has been put on display at Harper’s Mansion, the National Trust property in Berrima, for a limited time.

Many of Louisa's works are now held by the NSW State Library but the ‘The Study of a Possum’ was gifted to the National Trust by Janet Cosh, Louisa’s granddaughter, a long-time resident of Moss Vale. It hung in Old Government House for several years and has recently been restored and re-framed.
