Part of the Greater Blue Mountains drive, Wollondilly trail is a great way to see idyllic parts of greater Sydney from the comfort of your car. Pack a picnic lunch before you head off on this scenic mountain drive because you’ll find plenty of picturesque settings to stop and eat at.
This rural bushland circuit off the Hume Highway from Mittagong takes about an hour and a half all-up and tours past Thirlmere Lakes, Nattai National Park, and the Bargo State Recreation Area.
Stop and stretch your legs at Wombeyan Caves, where you can picnic on the spacious grounds or take a self-guided cave tour. Along the way, you can also visit the Train Heritage Works Museum in Thirlmere, with its amazing collection of locomotives. Be sure to stop in Camden, not far from Campbelltown, where rural life gets a glamorous twist. You can then stop off in charming, historic Picton for a coffee and a browse of the local galleries.
