A weekend in Berry is the perfect getaway. At only 2 hours drive from Sydney and 2.5 hours from Canberra, you will maximise your time exploring the beautiful historic village and soaking up its scenic surrounds.
The most important aspect of the perfect weekend away is choosing the right accommodation for you. We have an extensive range of accommodation, both in town and in rural settings, from cosy bed and breakfasts or self contained holiday homes, to hotels and motels, farmstays, and even camping sites. Whether you are travelling as a couple seeking a romantic getaway, as part of large group, with young children or pets, we have the ideal place for you to stay. If you would like help finding the right holiday home, why not get in touch with one of our fantastic local accommodation booking agencies which will be more than happy to assist.
Berry is quickly gaining a reputation as a foodie’s paradise. With award-winning wineries, amazing restaurants featuring a whole world of cuisine options, great cafes and excellent local bakeries and speciality produce you could easily spend an entire weekend indulging in the delights of Berry.
There’s also great opportunities to go behind the scenes of Berry’s food scene, meet some of the producers and sample their products on one of the fantastic local food and wine tours available. If you prefer to be the one cooking up a storm, you might like to boost your own skills by participating in a cooking class.
Before you head for home don’t forget to stock up on delicious local produce including breads and pastries, cheeses, preserves, homemade chocolates and confectionary, local wines and other delights from local shops and markets.
Berry is a picturesque village set at the foothills of rolling green hills, just a few minutes drive to the beautiful beaches of the NSW South Coast. It is the ideal base for exploring the region and there’s no doubt you’ll find yourself itching to get out there and amongst it.
One of the best ways to start the day is watching the sunrise at the stunning Seven Mile beach at either Gerroa or Shoalhaven Heads, just 10 minutes from Berry. There’s also access via the bush track to Berry’s Beach (the middle area of Seven Mile Beach) at the end of Beach Road.
Later, why not grab your walking shoes and explore one of the scenic mountain or coastal tracks, or jump on your bike and enjoy a gentle roll or conquer the hills. Berry’s Broughton Creek or the nearby Shoalhaven River at Shoalhaven Heads and Crooked River Estuary at Gerroa also offer excellent opportunities for stand up paddleboarding or kayaking.
If exploring the township is more your style there’s an eclectic collection of boutique shops, galleries and museums offering excellent indoor adventures. While for history buffs, there’s the Berry Historic Walking Trails which enable you to take a step back in time.
Once all the exploring is done it’s time to unwind and relax. Berry is fortunate to be home to several fantastic beauty salons, massage therapists and hair salons that will leave you feeling completely pampered.
If active relaxation is your preference, check out upcoming events and markets or choose from Berry’s range of workshops, retreats and talks offering everything from yoga, creative workshops and decorative arts, to empowerment and inspiration.
