Surrounded by green pastures and the Budawang Ranges, Milton lies in the coastal hinterland of the NSW South Coast's Shoalhaven district. It was established in 1860 as a rural service centre for pastoral and timber industries. Today the town retains historic charm with its old buildings and National Trust historic houses.

Milton has a number of arts and crafts galleries, antique shops and cafes and is a popular stop-over before reaching the coastal resort town of Ulladulla and Mollymook.

It's also the starting point for the Pigeon House Mountain trail, so named by James Cook on his first sighting. The walk itself is fairly steep, particularly the last 200 metres which requires scaling several chains ladders to reach the summit for the breath-taking view.

Milton is located about 3 hours south of Sydney along the Princes Highway.

Things to do:

  • Bower House Gallery & Designs - by far the best galleries in town with a timber gallery, contemporary art and jewellery gallery and pottery shop
  • Historic Houses - walk along the main street to see historic public buildings like the Post Office (1880), Police Station & Court House (1877), old Town Hall (1871) and Library. Other historic houses include: 'Angel Rose' Restaurant (1887), Anglican Church of St Peter and St Paul (1860), Uniting Church and manse, 'Springfield' (1860s),'The Settlement' and many more
  • Harry McLaren's Folk Museum - private collection of carriages, furniture, costumes, tools and books in Wolseley St.
  • Festivals - Scarecrow Festival in conjunction with Ulladulla's Blessing of the Fleet Festival (Easter), Settlers Fair (October Long Weekend)

    In the area :

  • Pigeon House Mountain walk - take the turn off 5 minutes south of Milton to get on to the access road to Pigeon House Mountain.
  • Shallow Crossing - for swimming and canoeing
  • Boyd Lookout - for a scenic lookout up and down the coast
  • Green Island - surfing, fishing and to see array of bird-life
  • Pointers Gap - 13 km north-west, with lookout over the coast
