Berry: A Rural Retreat with Urban Conveniences

Berry is a quaint, historic holiday town amongst the rolling hills of the Cambewarra Range in New South Wales. Berry was settled in the early 1800s and was the first country town south of Sydney. This rural getaway is set far enough out to provide a quiet and low-key holiday; all the same, city-quality services are offered throughout town. There is a large market of self-contained holiday rental homes in Berry and a few kilometres away in the countryside, many of which are surrounded by trees and offer unbeatable rural views.

Shopping and Dining in Berry

While there is a relaxed rural atmosphere in Berry, shopping options are plentiful. In the town centre, you’ll find an eclectic mix of boutiques, book stores, music outlets, home decor shops and convenience stores. One of the highlights of Berry shopping is the amount of antique and collectible stores spread throughout town. Take an afternoon to browse- maybe you’ll find the next piece for your home! If you enjoy arts and crafts, you can stock up on supplies in Berry, as the town also boasts a number of craft stores and art supply retailers.

After all that shopping, you’re bound to get hungry, so stop for a bite at one of Berry’s eateries. Foodies are in luck—Berry boasts 12 restaurants that are featured in the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide. Best of all, dining establishments come in all price ranges and cuisine types, ensuring there’s something for every pallet. On the outskirts of town, some vineyards also feature restaurants with dishes made from local ingredients and their own wine.

Markets and Festivals in Berry

On the first Sunday of each month, Berry plays host to an expansive outdoor market, where you have the opportunity to buy fresh produce, crafts, artwork and more. This market is held every month except for February, when the town holds the annual Berry Agricultural and Horticultural Show. Witness everything this rural community has to offer, with events such as cattle shows, a rodeo, wood chopping and dog high jump contests. Music, garden and art festivals are held in Berry throughout the year, as well, which means there is always an appealing event to attend.

Discover the Berry Area through Walks and Tours

While in Berry, familiarize yourself with your surrounds by participating in a Segway tour. These machines are equipped with all-terrain tires, and this makes exploring the forest, the wetlands, nearby wineries and even the town a breeze. The tours are done at a slow pace to allow a lot of time for the tour guide to inform riders about the area and to give even inexperienced riders a chance to get the hang of operating a Segway. For more information, contact Segway Tours South Coast.

Once you are back on your own two feet, give the Heritage Walk a try. Berry is filled with historic buildings that date back to the later portion of the 1800s and the Heritage Walk is a fun way to see them all, as well as historic sites throughout the town. Walk past the old post office, an old hotel and the Tower, among others. Do not forget to pick up a guide from the Berry Museum for more information about these buildings.

For further exploration of the South Coast, try a food or wine tour. These adventures begin in Berry and take you and the rest of the group to three or four other locations on the coast. Sample local food at each destination and try varieties of wine that are produced in the region. As an added bonus, these tours are a good way to find out more about the South Coast region, should you wish to explore it at a later date.

There is much to do and see just a short drive from Berry. One of the most popular attractions on the South Coast is Seven Mile Beach National Park, an unspoiled reserve that includes lush inland areas filled with wildlife and a golden sand beach that truly stretches for 7 miles. To see more than 100 species native to Australia, spend some time at Nowra Wildlife Park, where you can join keeper talks, explore the rainforest and even feed some animals yourself. In addition, a variety of smaller national parks on the South Coast provide barbecue areas and well-maintained paths for forest exploration at your own pace.

Beautiful view

5 of 5
We had a fabulous week away at Bo Farm. It is a beautifully appointed home with quality products, decor and linens. We thoroughly enjoyed the Moogoo bath products and my daughter loved playing with the bath toys that were supplied. The house is stocked with everything you would ever need and more in order to self cater. A great place for families as Tracey can provide a high chair and porta-cot if needed. The property is very peaceful with a spectacular view. We enjoyed exploring the property and looking at the animals in the neighbouring properties. We had a family of Kangaroos that visited everyday as well as family of ducks which my daughter enjoyed immensely. A great space to soak in the view whilst sitting on the front verandah with a wine and cheese platter.

Excellent property!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay Berry's Oliver's Cottage, it was perfect for our family of 2 adults and 2 small children. It is a gorgeous character filled cottage and very well kept with all the modern conveniences. It is in a great location, just a few minutes walk to Queen Street which suited our plans of visiting relatives close by and enjoying beautiful Berry and the surrounding areas. We would definitely recommend and like to stay again!
