Destination guide

Come to the South Coast – you'll be Berry glad you did!

The coast is calling – the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia, that is! Once there you'll find the charming small village of Berry, where rolling dairy farms give way to the sparkling blue waters of Berry Bay and the Pacific Ocean. You could spend your days strolling down the rural town's tree-lined streets, pausing to pop inside antique shops, boutique stores and galleries, or just soak up the sun and surf with a day at the beach. Armed with an abundance of fresh local produce, Berry also has more than its fair share of award-winning restaurants, cafes and wineries.

Activities

Beach blanket bingo in Berry (or a day of fun in the sun)

Sunscreen and sandals are key for a leisurely day at the popular Seven Mile Beach. If you prefer to get a little wet and wild, then you could dive into the water for a bit of surfing, paddle boarding or wakeboarding. Nearby rivers offer plenty of opportunities for fishing as well. Back on land you can enjoy a game of tennis or golf, or take a horseback ride through the countryside. Make sure you pick up plenty of fresh local products at the Produce Market, which is held twice a month, and bring some goods back to your Berry vacation rental.

Weather

Sunny skies, summer showers and everything in between

You better pack an umbrella if you're visiting Berry in March, the city's wettest month. But keep in mind, the rainy season runs from January through April; June and November see their fair share of showers as well. If you want to vacation while it's dry, consider planning your visit for July, when the skies are usually clear, although the temperature can dip as low as 15 degrees Celsius. January is typically the town's warmest month, with the mercury climbing as high as 22 on most days.

Natural highlights

The rule of nature: if there's a whale, there's a way

Berry's most famous landscape are its beaches, although the shores are lined with everything from rocky outcrops, white sand and grassy lawns. Head out into the open waters for an up-close encounter with wildlife, with many local companies offering whale watching tours. It's not usual to also spot dolphins and seals during these nature tours. Enjoy an island retreat as you take a short ferry ride from Seven Mile Beach, across Berry's Canal to the Comerong Island Nature Reserve. This untouched ­­­area is known for its wide array of shorebirds and excellent fishing conditions.
