Comerong Island is at the southern end of Seven Mile Beach and makes a great off-the-beaten-track day trip from Berry.
To reach the island, drive south from Berry into Nowra, then turn left along Moss Street. Follow Terara Road then Comerong Island Road for 10km. From here you take a small car ferry across Berry’s Canal, cut in 1822 by Alexander Berry’s men to enable them to reach the Shoalhaven River.
On arrival by ferry, follow the road to the northern end of the island, where there is a carpark. The beach can be reached from here via a 300m bushwalk, that may not be very clearly marked and the bush may be dense in parts. A 4WD track runs from the northern to the southern ends of the islands.
Basic picnic facilities are available at both the northern and southern ends of the island.
Comerong Island Beach faces east.
The road through Comerong Island Nature Reserve is unsealed and may not be suitable for conventional cars after heavy rain.
