AN INSTITUTION IN THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS – RICH IN HISTORY

The Springett Family had established themselves in Bowral when they opened a general store in 1926.

Two decades later the Springett Family expanded this general store into a bakery and soft-drinks plant. These buildings were the first to distribute soft drinks and sliced bread in the Highlands. The soft drinks plant was the first plant to make the soft drink Passiona in Australia.

In 1972 the Springett Family opened Springett’s Arcade in the town. Today the Springett’s family members are still managing this historic building with 38 shops and offices in the heart of Bowral.
