The Berrima Courthouse can now truly lay claim to offer visitors a remarkable and extraordinary theatrical experience. A new sound and light show innovation brings together the very latest in audio visual technology. At the press of a button the visitor will find all their senses heightened to a level seldom experienced.
As a narrator suddenly appears from out of the darkened court room & gives his historical chronicle to events in Berrima all in 5.1 surround sound. This visual prelude also includes the trial of the infamous murderers of the 1840s. As you are encircled on all sides by jury, public gallery, clerks of the court, barristers, the judge, and the accused this all goes to enhance the occasion. The terrible and final judgment will astonish most as the judge suddenly appears and makes his final summation as to what happens after execution. We promise you a most memorable encounter at the Berrima Courthouse.
Open 7 days 10.00am - 4.00pm
What remains of the past is giving the Historic Village of Berrima its future as thousands of visitors continue to discover the charm of Australia?s best-preserved colonial Georgian village. Berrima was established in the 1830s during a time of great exploration and pastoral expansion. It was a time when Australia began its march towards nationhood.
Through Berrimas busy streets and country lanes paraded a raw and riotous collection of early nineteenth century inhabitants. When visiting historic Berrima a must see on your arrival is a visit to the Berrima courthouse.
To day visit to the courthouse is much more a unique theatrical experience rather than a foreboding one. The Berrima courthouse late last year completed a mammoth project in producing and installing a spectacular Son et Lumiere (sound & light show) titled "Treachery Treason & Murder" a dramatic and moving audio visual experience masterfully depicting the most infamous trial of the 1840s.
As you walk into the main courtroom you are surrounded on all sides by juror's public gallery, witnesses, and barrister's clerks of the court. As the preamble comes to a conclusion the judge appears out of the darkened courtroom to commence his sentencing of the two murderers. His final summation and orders will chill you. All in all in its latest incarnation the Berrima courthouse still provides those that enter a glimpse into our early 1830s justice system, albeit without the risk of a lengthy sentence to prison or even a more somber outcome the death sentence. The Berrima courthouse has become one of the "must see" attractions for those that visit the southern highlands & historic Berrima.

If you are looking for the perfect family day out then head to Australia's premiere Scottish Highland Gathering.
Saturday 6 April 2019.
In the mists of the New South Wales Southern Highlands lies the village of Bundanoon, home to the traditional Scottish Highland Games. For the past 41 years, Bundanoon has gained the envious reputation throughout Australia for hosting ?Bundanoon is Brigadoon?, the gathering held ?Always in April? with a following of 12000 visitors come along and enjoy and participate in the day.
Brigadoon begins at first light with the haunting sound of Bagpipes drifting across the village in anticipation of a day of traditional Scottish celebrations.
While locals and guest?s alike lie safe and snug in their beds they awake to the sound of the bagpipes echoing hauntingly, while the village of Bundanoon is magically transformed into the mystical ?Brigadoon?.
This annual event began on 21 October 1978, its principle aim to raise funds for local charities and bring tourists to Bundanoon in particular and the Southern Highlands in general thereby benefiting local businesses, guesthouses and hotels. Continuing to this day, ?Bundanoon is Brigadoon? has become one of the most successful events staged in the area. From its humble beginnings of a handful of pipe bands and spectators, and is recognised worldwide and has grown to into one of the finest Highland Gatherings in Australia.
Bundanoon is a comfortable 2 hour drive from Sydney and Canberra and the South Coast, which makes it the ideal location for travellers who just want to pop in for the day or for others who wish to stay and enjoy ?Brigadoon? and the hospitality and culture of the Southern Highlands. With such an influx of people coming into the area, local businesses and the hospitality trade in particular have thrived to the point where there is hardly a room available anywhere and in most cases all accommodation is booked a year in advance.
?Bundanoon is Brigadoon? is a non-profit making, registered charity event that readily distributes the funds from the day to local charities and volunteer groups that assist the organisers in the administration of the gathering. The committee of the Bundanoon Highland Gathering ensures that it recognises the commitment of those local charities and groups who give countless hours of labour to the gathering by disbursing monies raised on the day on a proportional basis to each organisation.
All roads lead to Bundanoon or so it would seem as the village waits in anticipation as cars, coaches, bikes bring the thriving throng of spectators prepared for a day of highland festivities.
The Street Parade starts at 9.00am and features 25 Pipe Bands from all over the state and inter state accompanied by a large variety of decorated floats and marching Clan Societies.
The Opening Ceremony begins at 10.00am. The Gathering is officially opened by the Chieftain of the Day. Spectators are then treated to a spectacular Massed Pipes and Drums display. The sheer pageantry of the display has to be seen to be appreciated; the magic of the occasion leaves one breathless. The swirling of a myriad of coloured tartans and music stirs the heart and makes you proud to wear the Kilt of your ancestors.
At the Oval there are over 100 specialist stalls, selling everything Scottish, from pies & shortbread to Clan memorabilia & souvenirs, with copious amounts of food promoting every nationality, even the Scots favourite ?Haggis?.
All are made most welcome at the gathering and encouraged to participate in the ?Traditional? and not so ?traditional? games. This as ?The Ideal Family Friendly Day Outing? and you don?t even have to be Scottish to enjoy the day.
It is with great pleasure that the Bundanoon Highland Gathering Committee announce for the ongoing entertainment of the public they have continued with the heavy weight event to be performed by selected members of the Tartan Warriors: "Australian Highland Heavy Weight Events Championship".
This heavy event has 5 separate individual challenges, Shot Putt, Weight for Distance, Weight for Height, Heavy Caber, and Hammer Throw. This event is proudly sponsored by Highland Titles.
The committee recognises and encourages mass participation by spectators and especially the children. Spectators can try their luck at, Kilted Races?, ?Egg Throwing? and Water Toss. There is also a Bonnie Bairns highland dress competition for all the proud parents.
Throughout the day one can enjoy Highland and Scottish Country dance demonstrations, and for those who like to try something new you are cordially invited to join in. There are 30 Scottish Clans and Societies tents that have their own area where many make their way to enquire about their Scottish heritage and ancestry.
During the day at irregular intervals the Pipe Bands entertain the crowds with their own individual styles of music and display marching. This being a non-competitive gathering the bands can relax and really enjoy themselves without the added pressure of being held under the spotlight of judges. One of the main events of the day is the display of strength by The Tartan Warriors. These men compete in a competition to lift the ?Bundanoon Stones of Manhood?; Sponsored by Bundanoon Sandstone, there are 5 stones of incredible weight ranging from 100 to 165 kilograms. This really is a wonderful contest of speed, agility and strength.
As the day of festivities comes to an end and the closing ceremony approaches, the crowd are once again treated to the spectacle of the Massed Pipes and Drums display which is followed by the lone piper and a closing address by the Chieftain.
Those diehard fanatics who wish to continue on in the Scottish mood can join in the ?Official? Brigadoon Ceilidh (Scottish Knees-up) held at the Bundanoon Soldiers Memorial Hall. Bookings are essential and can be made on (02) 2443 6033. or Email: email@example.com.

Gibbergunyah Reserve is one of contrasts with secluded, shady walking trails and sunny, rocky outcrops to picnic on - a calm respite from the hurly burly of town. At over 800 metres Ninety Acre Hill Lookout has sweeping views of the distant Blue Mountains from its lichen clad boulders. Wombats and echidnas make their lairs in the crevices of the rocks below. There is a view of Mount Gibraltar from the Gib Lookout.
The bushland ranges from open woodland on the drier edges to tall moist fern-carpeted forest in the deeper gullies and is typical of sandstone ridges in the area. A variety of brightly coloured flowers bloom according to the season and tall banksia await fire to open their spiky, rock-hard seed-pods.
The 200ha Reserve which is roughly 1.5km square links Mittagong and Bowral. It may be entered from either. From Mittagong the northern access is at the end of Howards Lane, Welby. Access from Bowral is via a walking track beside a fairway of the Gibraltar Bowral Country Club. Trail Maps are located at both entrances.

Feedback from Rosanne - June 2018
Highview House accommodation.
We were welcomed on arrival by Carol & Phillip at Highview House for one nights accommodation. The unit was amazing - pristine, heating in living area & also bathroom. Heating for towels as well. The bed was excellent, quality lounge chairs & large coffee table for easy convenience. Parking available at entry door, Juliet balcony outside French doors but the highlight was kitchen facilities. Not only every electrical item imaginable but bread, crumpets, cereals, cheese & biscuits, nuts and a bottle of bubbly in a silver ice bucket. A small table & chairs in the kitchen area. We were amazed. Highly recommend without hesitation.

HISTORY: After the railway passed through what is now Bundanoon in 1868, settlement began to increase, and in 1877 a request was made to the Bishop for a minister to visit once a month. The first Holy Trinity Church at Bundanoon was erected with slab walls and shingle roof surmounted by three wooden crosses on one acre of land offered by Mr. W. A. Nicholas. It was consecrated on 9th November, 1879. The building was subsequently burnt down in the disastrous bushfires of December 1904.
On 8th March, 1905 His Excellency Sir Harry Rawson laid the foundation stone of the new stone church built by Mr. J.W.R. Walker of Kareela. Stonework was done by Mr. T. Shepherd and son from Bowral, and the windowsills dressed by G.W. Layton of Penrose. The sandstone came from near a coalmine halfway between Bundanoon and Penrose. The hardwood was supplied by Joe Tooth, who had a sawmill in the Bundanoon Gully.
Three beautiful windows adorn the east end of the building. One window shows the Holy Spirit as a dove descending, another the Lamb of God with a banner of love and together they flank the lovely central window with its colourful 'IHS' and seven orbs. The building was consecrated by Bishop Wright on 28th June, 1912. An historic cemetery is located behind the church. The earliest monument is to Amy E. Nicholas who died in 1880.

Integrity New Homes South Coast provides the innovative design flair of an architect coupled with the systems, service, quality, and price benefits of a volume builder.
We are focused on establishing a reputation for being a proactive builder providing cutting edge customer focused design throughout the region including Illawarra, Shoalhaven, Shellharbour, Southern Highlands, and Goulburn.
All this is backed by a family owned and operated company that has a long-term team of proven trade contractors supported by the two-part Integrity Edge quality assurance program.
On the construction side, trade contractors have written quality assurance schedules that provide specific minimum levels that must be achieved, signed off and presented with invoices ? no compliant quality paperwork and works and no payment. The Integrity Edge trade system covers all trades from concreters and carpenters through to painters, electricians and plumbers.
While over on the client side, there are a range of site meetings between the project manager and the client to inspect progress on construction and review and check off quality outcomes. There are also workplace health and safety matters which are addressed to ensure home owners are safe when they come on site and only attend the building works when accompanied by an Integrity New Homes South Coast representative.
Quality building outcomes are one of the cornerstones of the company?s success but we are human. After all, building a new home involves a large number of trade contractors and suppliers and is still a ?hand-crafted product?. This is why through regular communication; any issues are addressed in a timely and professional way.
The owners of Integrity New Homes South Coast have more than 35 years building experience in the region. Experience the difference of dealing with a business that cares!

Once home to an expansive shale mine and township during the late 19th century. Today, you can tour the settlement and see the ruins of a long lost village with its shale retorts, miners cottages, School of Arts, refinery area and cemetery. The mining technology that remains in the valley is of national heritage significance, being the only model of its type left in the world. Joadja Creek, which cuts through the valley, is a beautiful spring-fed waterway that never runs dry. It is the life source of the diverse flora and fauna that has reclaimed this once busy industrial site.
The Scottish heritage in the valley and the history of "sly grog" has inspired the Jimenez family who currently own and manage Joadja Town, to establish Joadja Distillery in 2014. The Jimenez family has also tapped into their own Spanish heritage and have sourced ex-Oloroso and ex-Pedro Ximenez butts from Spain to mature their Whisky. These barrels are historically known to be the types of barrels that the Scots consider the best to mature whisky and we are lucky enough to have the Spanish language and connection to be able to source and ship them to Australia and fill them with our own Australia made natural grain spirit.
In December 2016 we will have our first barrels of Joadja Whisky ready to release, but in the meantime we have produced our new make spirit to be tasted and mixed to make some fantastic cocktails, which will be ready by November 2015. We've called it Joadja Outlaw... a throwback to the history of 'sly grog' in Joadja.
Visit the cellar door on Saturday & Sunday where you will experience how we harness nature?s ingredients to produce a truly unique Australian Whisky and have a wee tasting of our Joadja Outlaw (from November 2015) and imported Pedro Ximenez Sherry. Café on site and the opportunity to visit a site of world heritage significance, Joadja is a great day out, so bring everyone and experience it for yourself!
Don't forget to visit our Joadja Town website to find out a little bit more about the Open Days for Joadja Town heritage tours, the history of the valley and the influence the town had on the area in its peak.
Open Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 4pm subject to Fire Bans.

Macquarie Pass National Park is part of the Illawarra escarpment south of Sydney. It contains a diverse range of habitats and wildlife including several rare and threatened plant and animal species.
The steep sandstone ridges and gullies are topped by cliffs, and the park supports heathland, woodland, tall open forest and significant rainforest areas. It is an excellent bushwalking and picnicking area, with spectacular scenery and waterfalls.
Walking tracks. The two kilometre return Cascades Walk starts at the carpark on the northern side of the Illawarra Highway at the foot of Macquarie Pass. It follows the creek for about one kilometre to the Cascades where the water falls 20 metres. It is a delightful easy walk on a fine day and features signs along the way providing information about the park.
For a longer walk, about six kilometres return, try the Clover Hill Road, an old logging trail leading to Rainbow Falls and three smaller falls upstream on the Macquarie Rivulet. This track, unlike the Cascades Walk, is overgrown in places and is only recommended for experienced bushwalkers equipped with a compass.
The Glenview Track leads off Glenview Road, a left-hand turn-off in the middle section of Macquarie Pass when descending. This track is open to walkers only and has several branches which give you the chance to explore other parts of the tall open forest. It crosses a creek that plunges over the Cascades, and you return the way you came.
Picnics and barbecues.
A picnic area is provided at the foot of Macquarie Pass on the northern side of the road. There are barbecues at the Cascades and Rivulet picnic areas, which are on opposite sides of the Illawarra highway.

Management tracks in Macquarie Pass are suitable for bicycle riding.

Wingecarribee Shire Council and our community aim to promote the type of development that would reduce the use of fossil fuels so The Welcome Centre has gone ELECTRIC!
In 2015, a 30 amp Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) recharger, supplemented by solar energy, was installed in Council's Welcome Centre carpark at Mittagong. This recharger is accessible by 58 of the 60 EV as a part of the Chargepoint network and plug-in hybrid vehicle models on Australian roads. Another two electric vehicle models can access this EV recharger using a type of adapter. This includes the Tesla (adapter not provided at Welcome Centre)
Some of the most popular EVs in Australia have a driving range of up to 170 kms making our recharger at Mittagong easily accessible from Sydney's CBD 113 kms away. This EV recharger is NOT a fast recharger, so it will take up to 5 hours to fully charge most current EVs from empty.
To sign up and find out more about Chargepoint visit their website www.chargepoint.com.au or call 1300 300 885. During Business Hours Staff at the Welcome Centre can assist you with Chargepoint cards and access to the Recharge station. It is currently not possible to book the recharging station, however this may be reviewed in the future.
There is no charge for our charger but some Chargepoint locations do have a fee.
NOTE: There are very few public EV recharge stations outside of the Sydney region at the moment so EV drivers still need to prepare for and plan their regional trips carefully.

James Fairfax AC has always believed that Retford Park should be preserved for the enjoyment and benefit of future generations, particularly those of the local district. On 19th April 2016 and in fulfilment of his ambition, Mr. Fairfax gifted his historic Retford Park home to the National Trust of Australia (NSW). It was in August 2017 that the National Trust officially took control of the property.
Retford Park is a place of great heritage significance. Its European history extends back to grants of land promised to Edward Riley senior by Governor Macquarie in 1821.
The house was built in 1887 by Samuel Hordern (1849-1909) merchant and stockbreeder, and his wife Jane nee Booth. The house at Retford Park (designed by Albert Bond) is set on a low rise, a grand rendered brick Italianate style residence. It was in 1964 that James Fairfax bought the property and started to turn it from an agricultural property to a gentleman's residence.
Having been in the caring hands of Mr Fairfax for over 50 years, the garden is a delight to wonder through. As you venture up the driveway the grand Victorian Italianate homestead appears from a towering arboretum of a magnificent collection of evergreen and deciduous trees, some very rare and unique.
Surrounding the eastern side of the homestead is a patchwork of hedged gardens showcasing everything from a detailed knot garden, exquisite swimming pool and pavilion, sculptures demanding centre stage and even a friendly family of five emus.
Note: The gardens of Retford Park are managed sustainably. Herbicides and other chemicals have been phased out.
From March 2018, the gardens will be open to the public on the first weekend of each month (except January). Although food and refreshments will be available when the garden is open for public inspection, you are more than welcome to bring a picnic as there are many idyllic spots to claim for a lazy lunchtime.
Open Garden entry fees:
Adults - $15
Concession - $10
Children - $5
Family (2a, 2c) $35
National Trust members - Free
Nestled in the picturesque Southern Highlands of NSW this historical property recently gifted to the National Trust is now available for your special day.

Selby & Friends presents ?chamber music at its best? (SMH) with six subscription seasons around Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide, Turramurra and the Southern Highlands, each presented five times per year.

She was awarded the ?AM? as part of the Australia Day Honours, 2013. Our 2019 Season marks 30 years since pianist Kathryn Selby returned home from the US and began creating concerts around Australia.
S&F is thrilled so many who joined Kathy then are still enjoying our concerts now and we are always delighted to welcome new patrons to our ?family?!

HISTORY: In 1893 Anglican services in Exeter were held in the Badgerys home, ?Vine Lodge?. With the support of the early pioneering families including the Badgerys, the Yarwoods and the Yates, St Aidans was soon built and opened for worship in July 1895, being dedicated on 11th January, 1896. It was extended east in 1903 and the western end completed in 1995.
St Aidans is of a style based on the ancient Celtic churches of Scotland. The walls are built chiefly of rough trimmed local basalt, mainly from Indigo Creek at the bottom of School Lane. The arches, door and window surrounds are of sandstone from Bundanoon. A sturdy Celtic cross of stone, having a separate nimbus and points fleury, surmounts the main gable of the slate roof. The semi-circular East window depicts the Good Samaritan and is dedicated to the Badgery family. The Church Hall was built in 1922 as a War Memorial.
In 2005 the Communion table and rail were moved to the western end of the church and seating for the congregation changed to provide easier access to the communion rail, improve visibility and provide facilities for the children. The grounds of St Aidan?s are laid out as a park, featuring hedged sweeping lawns, dominated by oaks, elms and other trees. A residence was built in the grounds in 1996 and is currently occupied by the assistant minister.

St Jude's Bowral is a community of Christian people who worship Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Through his death and resurrection rebellious and autonomous human beings are brought into a right relationship with God.
Through the gift of the Holy Spirit we are united in love for one another and seek to share the good news of Jesus with the community around us. The Bible tells of God's great drama and is available for all to read. The Bible says: "God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself."(2 Corinthians 5:19)
We invite you to join us and discover more about Jesus.
The aims of the association are to promote classical music in the St Jude Anglican Church and to maintain and develop the pipe organ in the Church.
To assist in its goals, the association conducts concerts and recitals (including Midweek Lunchtime Recitals) and holds a chamber music festival once a year over the last weekend in March (or if that is the Easter weekend, then over the preceding weekend). This is known as the Bowral Autumn Music Festival and is one of the Association's main events.

Take a scenic drive out to Exeter in the NSW Southern Highlands and find the charming converted old dairy, now cellar door of St Maur Wines estate, nestled in among the vineyards off Old Argyle Road.
St Maur is comprised of a total of 180 acres of which 16 acres are planted to classic grape varieties.
In 1998, Nerio and his son, Marco, decided to take their passion and interest for good quality wines and started the St Maur Wines, a single estate which produces small batches. In 2003, St Maur produced it first vintage, where five years where dedicated to tending the vines.
At St Maur cellar door, you will be warmly greeted by our enthusiastic cellar master and hostess with good-old- fashioned personalised services and hand-crafted wines. Set in a rustic vintage dairy farm, and with sweeping views, you will feel like you took a step back in time as you enjoy a relaxing wine tasting experience.
St Maur has a selection of classic vinifera grapes ranging from traditional Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to Chardonnay. At the cellar door, you get a taste of St Maurs premium LOT 41 collection along with the Saint Series range, a nod to the treasured animals at St Maur.
Our grapes are harvested in mid to late autumn and prune heavily to control leaf growth, limiting the grape quantity but produces a more intensely flavoured grape. This is specifically done to help the wine maker to create a regionally distinct and vineyard expressive wine year on year.
In 2016, St Maur is proud to announce the launched our St Maur Wine Club; bringing all those who love good wine, food and conversations together under one roof. Towards the same, we have an on-site private dining room for members and their guests to enjoy longest of lunches.

Drink a bit of history.
The original building had fallen into disrepair by the middle of this century, and efforts were made to preserve it. The current owners, The Durney family, have recently extensively restored and redeveloped the inn.
Their work has been recognised by the Australian Hotel Association?s Award for Excellence: Best Redeveloped Hotel ? Country, 1997 and in 2007 they won the Award for Excellence ? Best Heritage Hotel.
The Surveyor General Inn was built in 1834 for James Harper, using convict labour, and licensed as an inn in the following year. Remaining in the Harper family for almost one hundred years, The Surveyor General is the oldest continuously licensed inn in Australia. The main building, constructed of local convict-hewn sandstone and sand stock bricks, has served as both a pub and accommodation for over a century and a half.
From Cobb & Co. to today countless travellers have passed through its doors (although today, the taller may have to stoop to enter the low lintels!) ? from the Cobb & Co. passengers of last century, to the motor car travellers on the main Hume Highway south from Sydney this century, and the many visitors travelling to see the sights of historic Berrima today.
There were originally four inns at Berrima (the other original buildings still stand), but only the Surveyor General has survived as an hotel.
It was, as you can imagine, the favoured ?watering hole? for locals ? and remains so today.
The history of Sutton Farm dates to the early 1800s.
The property was originally part of a fifty-acre land grant given to Edward Shipley, an emancipated convict. Along with his wife Mary, (also a convict), he established the property known as ?Stonehill? in 1822.
The homestead was constructed using convict labour, and the Shipley?s lived and worked on Stonehill until its sale to Thomas Greenhill in 1851.
In 1867, Greenhill sold the property to James Walker, who renamed it ?Winston? and retained ownership until 1874, before selling to Edward H. Badgery, a member of a family that was one of the earliest to arrive in the European settlement of the Southern Highlands.
It was around this time, that a second story was added to the homestead, including its beautiful cedar staircase imported from a 17th century church near Dublin.
Ownership of the property changed a number of time in the early 1900s, before the establishment of the Sutton Farm Stables in the 1930s. The indoor arena was added to the stables in the 1960s, and the stables used as a location for the classic Australian horse movie ?Phar Lap?.
For a time in the 1980s, the stables were converted to craft shops and cafes and the indoor arena used to host musical performances!
In the early 1990s, Sutton Farm was returned to use as an equestrian facility. Now as a boutique agistment, accommodation and events centre, it has been restored to its glorious past as the Sutton Farm Equestrian Centre.
The Cottage at Sutton Farm is a 2 storey, 2 bedroom cottage that has been fully renovated circa 1800s. On the lower level there is a fully equipped kitchen, lounge / dining area and is fully heated with an open fireplace. There is a window seat to sit and watch the colourful bird life amongst the hedged cottage garden.
The bedrooms are located upstairs with the main bedroom looking out over the pond and outdoor arena. Both rooms have a split king size bed and are separated with an ensuite bathroom.
The Cottage is ideal for or 2 couples or 4 friends and will give you a most relaxing and memorable stay. The cottage is not suitable for the children under 10 years old, elderly or in firmed as it has a smallish staircase.

A Fingerprint Tree Guest Book is the perfect way to preserve precious memories of your special occasions. Each one of the leaves are the actual fingerprints of the people dear to you, meaning a Fingerprint Tree is the most uniquely personalised memento your could ever have.
The Fingerprint Tree guest book is an image of a tree where guests literally leaf (leave) their fingerprints, marking their attendance at your celebration. The leaves on the tree are formed and created with the actual fingerprints of your guests. Guests then sign their own name on, below or above their fingerprint.
All printing, Ink Pads and Pens (are NOT created equal) - we've literally tested 100's of combinations to ensure you receive the most premium product, to achieve the best result!
Whilst we give you the option to purchase the Giclée print only, we highly recommend you include the optional ingredients with your order. Using our combination of paper stock, Giclée printing, archival ink pads and archival pens we can offer you the best possible result to complete your stunning artwork, your guest book.
Although The Fingerprint Tree® was first used for weddings, we identified this beautiful product was in-fact suitable for various events and occasions, therefore our range has been expanded to over 80 designs, in order to 'tickle' the creative bone in all of us, to open up minds and offer beautifully designed and thoughtful guest books for ALL occasions, Including but not limited to, Family Reunions, Anniversaries, Baby Showers, Baby Gender Reveal Parties, Bridal Showers, Births, Christenings and Baptisms, Milestone Birthdays, Bar and Bat Mitzvah, Retirements, Graduations, Housewarmings, Holidays, Corporate events, Church events, Funerals, Family Tree, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Sporting groups, Industry Groups, Charity events, Gift for Teacher. Fingerprint Trees can be used for any event or special occasion. Other designs besides the bare tree are used and referred to as a fingerprint tree; however, the bare tree image remains the staple and signature of The Fingerprint Tree® (it forms part of our logo).
We look forward to creating your personalised Fingerprint Tree.
The Fingerprint Tree®, bespoke gifts you'll treasure!

The Robertson Hotel - Southern Highlands as it was originally established in 1924, was once considered the most luxurious hotel in the Commonwealth. Formerly known as Ranelagh Hotel and Fountaindale Grand Manor. Hotel accommodation is now available and we are taking bookings for weddings, conferences or any private events. The hotel boasts 50 rooms and 4 seductive oversized penthouse suites.
Where to celebrate, lounge and relax best described as the glamorous White Room, our grand dining room with its high ceilings, white Tiffany chairs and oversized fireplace is the perfect place to host a large celebration, a wedding or an intimate dinner for two.
During the day, it reflects a pristine white light that provides the ideal canvas to any colour scheme you might desire for your event.
At night, the two oversized wood fireplaces, tea lights, pewter hurricane lamps and French sconces cast an opulent golden glow over the rooms. It?s the perfect backdrop to all your special occasions.
Across the hall, you?ll find our Gatsby-style bar, which also boasts a fireplace, ambient lighting and handpicked, elegant furniture, reflective of the hotel?s deep-seated history. Guests can relax in the bar area, or flow into the salon to enjoy a nightcap and some bonding by yet another fireplace.
Our salon is the perfect place to enjoy quiet down time. With oversized sofas, an enormous fireplace, super-high ceilings and an ambience that simply draws you in, you can sit quietly and read, savour a cheese platter and glass of wine over a warm conversation, or gaze out the windows and watch the mist roll in.
To the right of the bar area, you?ll find our grand ballroom, with a jaw-droppingly ornate chandelier and acoustics that make it perfect for live performances, dancing and supper club type events.
Surrounding the ballroom, our relaxing, light-filled sunroom is ideal for breakfast and morning and High Teas. Carrying on with the white on white theme, a standout of this room is the retro-kitsch chandeliers, which are crafted from white metal with colourful flowers adorning them in place of crystals.
Whether you are visiting us on a solo getaway, as a couple, or in a large group, there is always somewhere for you to sit by the fire, soak up the atmosphere and be mesmerised by the beauty of your surrounds.
For any dining occasion, please contact us by email including your contact details, date of preferred reservation and the number of people attending.
Impeccable maintained, the gardens and grounds of the Robertson Hotel sprawl across 14 acres, and are filled with age-old trees and magical surprises, such as the Grotto, which was built by the Franciscan Friars during their tenure here in the 1940s.
Heritage rainforest surrounds the gardens, and leads you to the hotel?s private train platform. You will love exploring the lush grounds, soaking up the healing, restorative atmosphere, with fresh, clean, crisp air, an abundance of Australian native plants as well as fauna from across the Globe, and you?ll be sure to spot the odd critter or two. Think: fluffy white tailed rabbits, guinnae fowl, wombats, alpacas, chickens and trout in our lake, and that?s before you even get to your petting zoo!
Be sure to look out for the Statue of Mary, which was imported directly from the Vatican, and the statue of Pan, who is resting in the gardens with his flute. At a certain time of day, the light falls on him and he seems to come to life, just like a real little boy.
Then, there is the stunning heart shaped pond with a large fig tree at its banks, and a breathtaking escarpment where the views out to the East and the ocean are unparalleled.
Or if you?re an onsite guest, book a picnic lunch, which we can set up in the area of your choice, and cater according to your dietary needs.
We can also set up an elegant outdoor dining setting for you and your loved ones to enjoy dinner under the star-lit skies of Robertson.
