Exeter is a small village in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. It has an English town charm and feel. The town centre consists of a train station, an antique store, and a general store cafe. It is surrounded by residential housing with nice large gardens. There is one guesthouse available for accommodation.
Trains run to Sydney around every two hours, or every hour during peak. Usually requiring a change of train at Campbelltown. Regional (booked) trains do not stop here. You can take bikes on the train.
Exeter is signposted off the Hume Highway.
The town only consists of two shops next to the station.
A car would be convenient to see much of the surrounding area, and to get something to eat after 5pm.
Exeter is renowned for is gardens, and pretty country town feel. But unless there is an open garden that weekend, its hard to see unless you peer over peoples fences. There are not any always open gardens here, but you can walk the streets of the town easily.
Have a look around the antique store for something old or broken you would like to have. After that have a look around the general store. Then you are done.
