Are you having trouble securing the rental property of your dreams? Or just any rental property for that matter? As Marie-Antoinette Issa writes, a new website is here to help.

Firstly, it allows you REALLY find about about the condition of the property, how well it's maintained, how responsive the landlord is to fixing things, if it has mould, and so on and so on. Kind of like Trip Advisor but for rentals.

Secondly, the brainiacs behind the site have offered up several tips, exclusive to Southern HIghlands Style, that tenants can implement to make them increasingly attractive to landlords and agents.

What a beautiful start to spring we’re having! Each of the four seasons here in the Southern Highlands has its own distinct feeling and we love all of them for what they have to offer. There’s something special in the air when spring rolls around and we’re ready to soak it in.

When @eden_brew first opened its doors in Cavendish street in Mittagong in January 2017, it changed the way Southern Highlanders drank beer. With its craft beers freshly brewed on the premises, using the highest quality ingredients, and food carts outside for hungry imbibers, it quickly became our own mini slice of Portland, USA.

Conveniently located in a lovely nook half way between Mittagong central and Bowral’s high street, Eden brewery is one of the many Highlands establishments that welcomes dogs (and kids too – so makes the perfect outing for the family when we are not locked down).

Read more about the family behind the brewery and the process of their #beers 🍻 and #burgers 🍔 in our blog and don’t forget they’re offering online delivery whilst we’re in lockdown!

After receiving the bad news this week that the spinal surgery I’ve been waiting over a year for probably won’t go ahead now, I decided to amp up my holistic pain relief.

Every morning I’m spending 45-60 minutes in my @getmihigh sauna blanket and three times a week following it with Cryo sessions at @revitalizecryo in Mittagong.

I can’t recommend these treatments highly enough. They help me reduce the amount of meds I take, elevate my mood and most importantly give me some pain relief and the ability to walk farther than just to my front gate or my car.

Share your pictures and the story behind them! Here’s mine:

The Midas touch covers The Bong Bong Track!

This stunning image is the first in my series of Featured Locals.

“I captured this image one afternoon a few years ago whilst riding my bike from Moss Vale to Bowral, along the beautiful Bong Bong track.

“There had been a light rain shower and I was pretty soaked through and miserable. All of a sudden, the rain stopped and this majestic rainbow appeared as if out of nowhere.

“The light was just absolutely perfect, bathing the entire scene in gold and making the grassy fields seem as though King Midas himself had danced through them.

“I was going through a particularly difficult period back then, and this moment in time reminded me that life is indeed beautiful and ever-changing, no matter what obstacles we face.

“It gave me hope and for that brief moment, such immense joy in an otherwise trying period in my life. This is what I love about the Highlands … you can be in the same place every day, but it always appears different, thanks to our ever-changing weather and conditions. It really is so magical.”

Share your pictures with their back story in our Facebook group! We’d love to see them! 💚💚💚

Flower farming is hard work, but it is worth every bit to be rewarded with our beautiful flowers, and we now need an extra pair of strong motivated hands to help out on the farm.
.
With more beautiful flowers planned for this Summer, we need support in all areas of growing, which is very well suited to someone looking to start a Horticulture career.
.
This role will include the following and more:
- Bed preparation, propagation, seeding, planting, potting, etc.;
- Harvesting, grading and storing flowers;
- Farm landscaping maintenance;
- Feeding/watering/weeding;
- General/labouring duties and more
.
Hours will include early mornings and you need to be physically fit. You will be joining our team of Jen, Elle & James. You will work most closely and be taught/guided by Flower Farmer Jen.
.
Flexible on start date as long as it is by the end of the year, but sooner is great too. This role is offered as a full or part-time apprenticeship/traineeship, or part-time regular role.
.
Please message me if you are interested to discuss! Thanks, Jen 🌸
