Established over 185 years ago, Berrima is one of the several delightful towns that make up Sydney’s striking Southern Highlands region. Offering fine dining, boutique shopping, art galleries and some of the most exquisite wineries in the region, Berrima is a popular township for many reasons.
Located 126 kilometres south of Sydney, Berrima is considered one of the most well preserved Georgian villages on the Australian mainland. Historic buildings and 19th-century sandstone Georgian estates adorn the picturesque town, drawing in thousands of visitors every year. Aside from the remarkable local architecture including the Berrima Courthouse that was built in 1838, history abounds in the town centre at the Berrima District Museum and the National Trust-listed Harper’s Mansion. When in town, don’t miss an opportunity to enjoy a cold one at one of Australia’s oldest pubs, the Surveyor General Inn. For upmarket dining, enjoy a culinary experience like no other at the award-winning Eschalot Restaurant.
Venture a few minutes out of town and you can enjoy delicious wines among picturesque greenery at some of the region’s most superb vineyards including Joadja Vineyards and Winery, and Bendooley Estate. The neighbouring towns of Bowral, Mittagong, and Moss Vale are close at hand for further country explorations including Mount Gibraltar, the Mount Jellore Lookout, and the famous Bradman Oval and International Cricket Hall of Fame.
A classic Country NSW town with historic charms and local delights, Berrima is a great spot for a weekend getaway in the country or to while the days away in a quintessential Georgian village.
