Things to do

Celebrated the world over for its variety, natural beauty and many attractions, the NSW South Coast is alive with possibility.

Under ten minutes to the heart of village life, Berry is a town like no other. Combining timeless country charm with contemporary culture, explore Berry to discover a vibrant cafe scene, boutique shopping experiences and exceptional restaurants.

Held at the showground between 830am – 230pm on the first Sunday of each month, the Berry Country Fair offers the chance to pick up local produce and browse for collectibles, books, art, crafts and plants.

Culinary culture

Berry has several excellent restaurants including The Hungry Duck, SOUTH on Albany, Berry Wood Fired Sourdough Bakery and Salmon and Co. Please be advised that advanced booking is essential.

There are a large variety of excellent local wineries just a short drive away, including Coolangatta Estate Winery, Crooked River Winery, Silos Estate and Two Figs Winery.

Outdoor activities

Only 15 minutes to the grand sweeping sands, rock pools and bushland of awe-inspiring Seven Mile Beach National Park, it is also little more than 20 minutes to the sleepy coastal hamlets of Gerringong and Kiama.

Should golf be your passion, nearby courses include the Coolangatta Estate Winery (9 Holes), Shoalhaven Heads, Kangaroo Valley, Nowra and Gerringong.

A breathtaking drive westwards will lead you through the rugged escarpments of Kangaroo Valley to the natural beauty, waterfalls and cosy villages of the Southern Highlands.

For the more adventurous, there is a fabulous walk from the top of Woodhill Mountain Road to Drawing Room Rocks. Every step of this walk leads you closer to magnificent panoramic views.

The Berry Website – www.berry.org.au – also has some great ideas of what to do in and around town.
