As one of the earliest European settlements, Picton charms visitors with its heritage, colonial buildings and rail history. In the heart of the town, you will find the vibrant Argyle Street boasting an outdoor strip of local and artisan businesses including unique gift shops, ethically sourced goods, exotic and colourful homewares, grocers and even their very own toy shop. Visitors enjoy the natural beauty of the area and the convenience of being close to popular tourist attractions. Picton is also the home of the annual festival of art and light, Illuminate, held in September. The best way to discover Picton, enjoy the fresh country air and learn about the local heritage is on foot. The free self-guided Picton Walking Tour takes visitors through the town showcasing its heritage buildings and stops of interest and significance. Picton Botanic Gardens is only a short 10-minute stroll from the main hub of Argyle Street and a great location for a picnic and letting the kids play and enjoy the outdoors. Browse the manicured gardens and walk or cycle the 9km track surrounded by native Australian plants (your four-legged family members are also welcome on leads and there is an off-leash dog area at the end of the Botanic Gardens!). Heritage attractions include St Mark’s Anglican Church, designed by the famous colonial architect Edmund Blacket. You can take an audio tour via your phone using the QR codes at the site and immerse yourself in the stories of Wollondilly’s pioneers. Picton is also home to significant rail heritage with a unique railway Viaduct still in use on the main southern line as well as the Redbank Range Tunnel, fondly known by locals as the Mushroom Tunnel. Family fun activities include a race around Sydney’s best outdoor karting track and mini golf at Picton Karting or some friendly competition at Antill Park Country Golf Club. If you’re after an adrenalin high you can’t miss experiencing the region from 14,000ft above with Sydney Skydivers.
