Travel

Train

There are two train services to Bowral.

Country Link – Ph: 132 232
City Rail (via the airport) – Ph: 131 500

Country Link has a direct service from Central Railway Station Sydney.
City Rail also leaves from central and often requires a change at Campbelltown for the Southern Highlands Line. City Rail is the best choice for people coming from the domestic or international airport.

Car

From Sydney take the M5 and Hume Highway, then exit at Mittagong and follow signs to Bowral. A map is available on the contact page.

*Public transport is limited in Bowral and surrounding villages though there is a bus service and train line connecting Mittagong, Bowral and Moss Vale. We find students tend to organise and help each other out with lifts to and from Metavision amongst themselves.


Parking

All day parking is available where Intensives are held.

Weather in the Southern Highlands

Weather in the Southern Highlands can be highly variable so layering is the best option. It can be very hot or quite cool in summer and always cold in winter.   We suggest you bring something warm at all times.


Accommodation

There are different levels of accommodation available in the Southern Highlands. The Southern Highlands Tourist Information Centre are a wealth of information and can be contacted on 1300 657 559. We recommend trying the following:

Harmony Village is a Steiner community and is very popular with our students as it offers affordable dormitory style, yet comfortable accommodation at $60 per night. It is in a lovely setting and is a 10 minute drive north of the Metavision Institute in Bowral, It has the added bonus of being our education venue.
