Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bowral is the largest town in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia, in Wingecarribee Shire. It has a population of around 11,500 and the largest business and entertainment precinct in the Highlands. In a past era, Bowral served as a rural retreat for the elite gentry of Sydney, resulting in the establishment of many historic estates and manor houses in the district. Today, Bowral is universally associated with the cricketer Sir Donald Bradman, who is commemorated by the Bradman Museum and other monuments at the Bradman Oval. It also hosts the annual Tulip-Time Festival held in the town in September. Bowral is the notional birthplace of fictional nanny Mary Poppins, as author P. L. Travers spent her childhood in the town and began her life as a storyteller there.show more
