Welcome to the Southern Highlands Branch. If you live in the Southern Highlands, Illawarra, Shoalhaven, Camden or Goulburn/Crookwell areas of New South Wales you are automatically a member of the Southern Highlands Branch when you join the AGHS. The Branch has over 100 members. Our area boasts many historical and beautiful gardens and landscapes. We arguably have the richest collection to be found in any comparable area in the country.
During the year the Branch has a number of outside activities including garden visits in the warmer months, and it holds events indoors in winter. You are welcome to any event and will find us a friendly group. There are no monthly meetings, but we keep in touch with our members through our newsletter Inflorescence, updates to this website, and email. We invite you to read the latest editions of Inflorescence (see below) for articles on past and future events, and updates on our Branch projects and advocacy.
