Where you’ll be

Picton, New South Wales, Australia

Guests are spoilt for choice when they venture out of the Old Railway Cottage. Despite the location being an ideal base from which to explore the bountiful Wollondilly region and surrounds, guests will be tempted to remain within the locality of Picton given all that the township has to offer. Live like a local and take a short walk into town, stopping by the impressive 150-year old Picton Railway Viaduct on the way. Sample the enviable Picton lifestyle at local businesses, including fresh produce and artisan food at Pheasant’s Nest Produce, inspired floral arrangements at Porter & Hudson, aromatic and ethical coffee at R Coffee Co., and classic pub meals at the charming George IV Inn.

The historically minded adventurer will have their work cut out for them in this history-rich region, with the NSW Train Museum, the Warragamba Dam, Belgenny Farm, and the Wollondilly Heritage Centre and Museum all nearby.

Guests visiting on the first Sunday of the month will have the opportunity to explore the Picton Markets at the Shire Hall in addition to the local Picton retail stores. The massive Macarthur Square shopping centre is less than 30 minutes away and will satisfy the keenest shoppers of chain brands and eateries. Those looking for more boutique shopping experiences can drive 20 minutes to the charming village of Camden or else take a 30-minute drive or 45-minute train ride to the Southern Highlands town of Bowral for some serious antiquing.

Catch a train or drive into the nearby Macarthur Square for dinner at one of their many courtyard restaurants and enjoy a film while relaxing in Gold Class at EVENT Cinemas.

Early risers looking to create lasting memories can splurge on a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the lush and historic Camden Valley.

Action types can expect a thrilling challenge at Ultimate Paintball, Sydney’s largest paintball park only 15-minutes away. Or get the heart pumping with high speeds at nearby Picton Karting.
