Mittagong Profile


Mittagong is the 'Gateway' to the Southern Highlands; a charming town first settled in the 1800's for farming and grazing. The coming of the railway in 1867 created the centre of town, with a variety of early Australian architecture that still dots the town today. Many of these buildings were made from local sandstone along with the iron lace that was forged at the Mittagong iron foundries also supplying the terraces in the inner Sydney area.

Mittagong is surrounded by natural scenery, established gardens, walking tracks and scenic lookouts.
Lake Alexandra and the surrounding reserve, offer picnic & bar-b-q facilities, cycle and walking paths and abundant birdlife.
Winifred West Park (named after one of the founders of Frensham School) is in the centre of town and has massed displays of Tulips each spring.

Mittagong enjoys an assortment of Antique shops, restaurants, cafes & pubs, art galleries, craft and specilaity shops.
We are now home to a number of boutique vineyards and wineries.
A round of golf awaits at the 1st class course situated at the northern end of town and the village markets are held monthly.

With its close proximity to the freeway and railway links, Mittagong is a favourite destination for both day trippers and those city workers who enjoy
a rural residential lifestyle.
