Community Recovery Campaign
Our “Share the Love” community recovery campaign started at the beginning of the year in response to the bush fires that impacted our region. Now we face another huge impact with the fallout from Covid19.
While this changes our focus the sentiment to care and support our community remains. So now more than ever we’d love you to “Share the Love” with the Southern Highlands.
Firstly, many of our Southern Highlands businesses are still open. They may have changed the way they are now doing business but they are still operating, see list here.

How you can help
For locals we ask you to do your best to support them. Be it takeaways, deliveries or online orders.
For our valued visitors, and lovers of the Southern Highlands, we can’t wait to welcome you back soon. However, you can still get a taste of the Highlands with many of our businesses doing online orders. Along with our our special ‘Share the Love’ Website Deals and Gift Vouchers.
Our Southern Highlands award winning visitors centre is closed at the moment. However, our staff are still available and can be contacted to answer any enquiry you have here.
