Activities/Attractions: Picton (including Mowbray Park, Tahmoor, Thirlmere, Lakesland, Buxton, Couridjah, Douglas Park and Hilltop) is a quiet township on the edge of the Southern Highlands ... located on fertile land 68 km south west of Sydney and 171 m above sea-level in the foothills near Stonequarry Creek, a tributary of the Nepean River.

Picton has some lovely old buildings and public works to delight the visitor, like the old railway viaduct over Stonequarry Creek, the slab-built St Matthew’s Church, constructed in 1838, and several old family homesteads, one of which, Jarvisfield, is now the clubhouse for members of the Antill Park Gold Club.

For over 30 years Mowbray Park has been introducing children to the joy of horses and horse riding. Within the safety of our round yard, arena yard and gymkhana paddock, children from 10-16 yrs learn how to be safe and confident around these beautiful animals. Mowbray Park’s camps are focused on natural horsemanship and are an introduction to this sublime art. We introduce children to partnering strategies designed to broaden their understanding of the relationship between humans and horses.

Our other activities include:

  • Boomerang throwing
  • Sheep shearing demonstration
  • Whip cracking
  • Farmyard activities - feeding the nursery animals, collecting eggs and cow milking
  • Hay ride to feed the cattle
  • Billy tea & damper
  • Canoeing
  • Archery
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Billiards
  • Table Tennis

We also have regular Bush Dances and campfires.
