Robertson has often been described as being the ‘green heart of the Southern Highlands’, for its rolling emerald hills and notably English countryside. The rich red volcanic soils and intensive rainfall promotes lush growth around the town that is seated on edge of the Great Dividing Range. Robertson is famous for its English landscape, potatoes, cheese store, and being the location for the filming of the movie "Babe”.
The town is an excellent base for exploring the natural wonders of Budderoo and Morton national parks, which feature a number of spectacular waterfalls and bushwalking trails. On the second Sunday of each month take a ride on the Cockatoo Run, a thrilling rail loop from Sydney through Robertson.
