Title: Map of the NSW Southern Highlands
Post by: ADCR on 01 Aug 2005 at 07:20
Here's a road map of the NSW Southern Highlands, the general area in which it is proposed to hold the Douglas Centenary Rally. The freeway by-passes the towns and the main roads servicing the towns and the rural roads around them are ideal for the rally - they are well maintained, safe and traffic is usually light to moderate - and the scenery is unparalleled.

Road travel tips:
It takes about 30 minutes to travel from one side of the map to the other (about 15 minutes north to south via the freeway). Details of on and off ramps are outlined on the Road directions page. From Mittagong, Bowral, Moss Vale, or Berrima it is about 10 minutes drive to the next adjacent main town.

From Moss Vale, Sutton Forest is 5 minutes, then Exeter 5, and Bundanoon another 5. Fitzroy Falls and Robertson are each about 20 minutes from Moss Vale or Bowral.

On the Freeway the speed limit is 110 kilometres per hour. Elsewhere limits range from 50 kph (residential areas) all the way up through 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 kph. Motorists are advised to watch carefully for speed limit signs (which often seem to move location without warning). Patrol cars, unmarked police cars, and radar are used widely.

Beware of travelling at high speed on narrow country roads and lanes. Approach the junction of Illawarra Highway and Sheepwash Road (see map, west of Burrawang) with extreme caution. At roundabouts (there are many) give way to any traffic already in the roundabout (not just on your right); there is no priority of access for cars driving straight ahead through the roundabouts.
