5 Family & Pooch Friendly Walks & nearby Refuels

Pet Friendly walks in the Southern Highlands

🏃‍ Box Vale Walking Track at Mittagong follows the now dismantled rail line once used to access coal deposits. Through bushland, we chose the easy grade 4.4km walk option via creak beds, shaded fern lined cuttings & a beautiful sandstone tunnel to the lookout, then returned on the same path. A well earned brunch from The Boston recommended afterwards too⁣.

🛴 Bong Bong Track between Moss Vale & Burradoo, perfect for the family and fave canine on lead. Meander along the Wingecarribee River flat by bike or foot, spot local woodland birds and wildlife, maybe even a platypus some say! Stop in at Rush Roasting Co at Moss Vale for sustenance after⁣.

🐶  Cherry Tree Walk at Bowral – a very pretty and flat 5km pathway perfect for walkers, little bikers and on lead pooches. Starts at the pool and follows a creek through the leafy back streets of Bowral. The cherry trees were planted in memory of each soldier lost in the Vietnam War. Stunning when in blossom in spring. Refuels at The Press Shop are a great reward⁣.

📰  Berrima River Walk – a 1.8km bushland walk along the Wingecarribee River, reasonably level, with markers highlighting the lives of German seamen who were interned here in WWI. The beautiful historical village of Berrima is within cooee to explore too, as is the very welcome General Store Cafe Berrima⁣.

🌳  Exeter Village and surrounds (just a little biased here 😊) – wander the tree lined country lanes such as Devon Road, Cornwall Road, Ringwood Lane or Stone Quarry Creek Road and our beautiful, historic village and pretty oval with your pooch. All manner of yum takeaway treats and drinks at Exeter General Store of course!⁣
