Berry’s heritage buildings and village atmosphere have long been a drawcard for visitors. Now, Berry has been officially been given status as an ‘Historic Town’. As a result ‘Brown Castle’ signage has now been erected on both the northern and southern approaches to the town.
Why not discover more about the history of Berry on your next visit by visiting the Berry Museum. Entry is free however, as the Museum is operated by dedicated volunteers of the Berry & District Historical Society, donations are greatly appreciated. The museum can be found at 135 Queen Street, Berry. The Museum is open on Saturdays 11am – 2pm, Sunday 11am – 3pm as well as School and Public Holidays 11am – 2pm.
The Berry & District Historical Society, in association with the Berry Chamber of Commerce and Tourism, have also created the Historic Walking Trail around the township which is available for pdf download or on Google Maps click here.
As you follow the trail, or simply wander around the town, you will see recently installed heritage plaques (as pictured below) on many of the significant buildings including the Berry Courthouse, Wilson Stores, Belle Property building, LEAF restaurant and more.
