🍒 Soak up one of Spring’s best offerings on the Cherry Tree Walk at Bowral, now at the end of it’s blossom season but still stunning! The beautiful cherry trees lining the walkway commemorate each soldier lost in the Vietnam War. It’s an easy meandering 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. So many lovely refuelling stops to enjoy nearby too including Press Shop , Plantation Café & South Hill Kitchen for starters.
🌷 While you’re at it, pop in to see the gorgeous tulip explosion at nearby Corbett Gardens. In the absence of Tulip Time this year it’s a great way to get your 2020 tulip fix before the month of October gets away on us!
