Fun Things To Do
Established in the 1830’s, Berrima is recognised as one of Australia’s best preserved examples of a Georgian village. Today’s visitor to Berrima can experience the quiet charm and romance of a village rich in social history as well as in early sandstone buildings.
The Court House, museum, art gallery, antique shops, boutiques, fine restaurants and cafés are a delight to visit..
The Southern Highlands is a recognised cool climate wine region with Berrima at its centre. Ten wineries are within a 15 minute drive from the village. Some are only few minutes up the road.
On a HOT day you can walk 200metres to the local river which is deep enough to enjoy a refreshing swim adn has a diving board and swing rope for your enjoyment.
Over the road is a tennis court that can be accessed via a key held at the local General Store for the small sum of $10. Some tennis racquets and balls are available at Poppies.
Adjoining towns and other tourist attractions are all accessible only minutes away by car from Berrima. It is only 10 minutes drive to surrounding towns of Bowral, Mittagong and Moss Vale.
