Our little piece of paradise shares its name with an otherworldly twin. The Southern Highlands is also a section of the Earth's moon.
Australian National University astronomy professor Dr Brad Tucker said the area was close to the moon's South Pole where the USA planned to land and set-up operations in 2024.
While Southern Highlands is located in the southern hemisphere of the moon, we actually view it upside down.
"Just like the Earth, the moon has a designated northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere," Dr Tucker said.
"However, this is a measured from the Earth's northern hemisphere. This is important as in the southern hemisphere here on Earth, we see the moon upside down from the northern hemisphere.
"What this means is that when you look at the moon, the Southern Highlands are on the top part not the bottom. Talk about an upside-down world."
If you want to see the Southern Highlands tonight look to the light section at the top of the moon.
Dr Tucker said the highlands were the lighter coloured areas of the moon. He said the darker, dark gray areas were called mare, or seas.
"Most think these are craters but actually they are the most recent volcanic lava flows from billions of years ago.
"The lighter areas, the highlands are the more cratered areas on the moon - it is older material and so shows the signs of meteor bombardments."
