ONE FINE DAY WHAT IT’S RE­ALLY LIKE…

Mit­tagong in NSW’s South­ern High­lands to be a pro­fes­sional food for­ager

BAR­BARA AND WARWICK WAINBERG are South­ern High­lands farm­ers who adore this cor­ner of New South Wales. In 2009, they fell in love with a grand, aban­doned bank in the town of Mit­tagong. The his­toric two-storey build­ing, con­structed in 1892, was due for de­mo­li­tion un­til they saved the Vic­to­rian-Ro­manesque-styled prop­erty, em­bark­ing on a painstak­ing, seven-year restora­tion project. Now you can stay in their labour of love, the charm­ing Old Bank Bou­tique Ho­tel, opened last Septem­ber. Here they show you how to make the most of your time in town.
