About Berry

Two hours south of Sydney and 2.5 hours from Canberra, historic, beautiful Berry. Named as Top Small Tourism Town in New South Wales and located in the picturesque Shoalhaven region of NSW, it features rolling green hills, access to nearby stunning Seven Mile Beach, noted heritage buildings, and a thriving arts scene. 

The Wodi Wodi people of the Dharawal nation were the original inhabitants of the area before the arrival of Alexander Berry and other Europeans in the early 19th Century. Nearby Cullunghutti ( known also as Coolangatta Mountain) is recognised by Aboriginal people across the continent as a place of great significance. 

With award-winning restaurants and a cosmopolitan retail hub, Berry is a small town with a big personality, accessible by both train and car, and with regional flights to Shellharbour Airport only forty minutes away.
