Black Head in Gerroa

< 30mins, 30mins – 1 Hour, Parks & Picnic Areas, Family-Friendly, Pet-Friendly, Scenic

Only 15 minutes drive from Berry, Black Head Reserve is at the tip of Gerroa’s headland with stunning views to the south over Seven Mile Beach, and to the north up the coast. A lovely spot for a picnic or a stroll, most of Black Head is a designated 24-hour dog off-leash area. See the signs in the car parks for details.

There is also access down to a little beach to the north of the headland, ideal for looking at shells and exploring rock pools. It’s best to wear sand shoes or sturdy sandals in this area. Thongs slip easily on the wet rock.

Black Head is also a great spot for whale watching between May and November, with the whales migrating north from May to August, and south from September to November.


  • Two car parks – one at the southern end of Headland Drive, and the other at the southern end of Stafford Street.


Yes. Dogs can be off-leash in most of Black Head. See signs for more details.
