Out & About

celebrating good food & company in a cosy cottage

It’s the small things in life that make it that little bit better! In May we made a trip to Bowral to celebrate with good food and good company.

A couple days in the Southern Highlands were refreshing (to say the least). The delightful town of Bowral and our equally delightful accommodation kept us warm and cosy for the entire weekend, where a group of friends were able to unwind and take some time away from work and life.

We believe regular massage should be mandatory. Regular treatments are fantastic for personal wellbeing and have a multitude of benefits on our bodies. A hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy, whereby flat stones (which have been heated) are incorporated into the massage at key points on the body. The heat in the stones is effective in enabling the muscles to loosen up, improve circulation and increase the flow of energy in the body.

  • spa dilusso, a price-friendly spa in the main street of Bowral. The extremely accommodating staff made our morning, by hosting a complementary high-tea which allowed a group of us to put our feet up and catch up before each of our treatments.

Enjoying good food, and all the delights Bowral had to offer.

  • The raw & wild market & cafe, it’s a great spot to explore if your into all things health & food- with a store out front and a cafe out back, complete with an extensive menu and outdoor seating. It seemed to be dog-friendly too, with a couple of pooches invited to sit out back.
  • The Milk Factory Gallery & Cafe, again it’s not simply a cafe, but also a gallery. This contemporary venue also has a great menu too offering tapas as well as a full-menu. Having indulged in plenty of wine and cheese, we ordered the heirloom vegetables.

Following dinner, the Chef visited our table to talk through the dessert options. We went for the poached pear and fig ice-cream… yum!

In a society of abundance and fast pace, quality time for relaxation and enjoyment has become a precious commodity. Feeling nurtured can be re-engergising in itself. Bowral was a hit, an easy trip to get away for a couple of nights and rejuvenate.
