Just 2 hours south of Sydney, 35 minutes from Wollongong and 10 minutes from Kiama is the seaside town of Gerringong, a picture postcard destination with something for everyone.
Being an easy drive from Sydney Gerringong is a popular day trip destination for many Sydney residents but the truth is that this beautiful part of the world is so much more than a day trip. With it’s beaches, galleries, restaurants, wineries and accommodation choices Gerringong is best enjoyed with a two or three day stay but be careful….. many Gerringong residents came for a weekend and decided to stay.
It’s one of those beautiful quiet seaside towns which isn’t really far from anywhere but still far enough away from the hustle and bustle of city life to deliver the sea change which many of us dream of.
It’s a town where everyone says g’day, where “please” and “thank you” are still commonplace and the main street is more of a community meeting place than a traffic thoroughfare. It’s a town with all the “mod cons” but minus the hype. In short it’s a town that makes you feel welcome.
Surrounded by some of the most well known and iconic tourist destinations in NSW Gerringong is minutes away from Kiama, Gerroa, Kangaroo Valley, Berry, Nowra, Jamberoo, Shellharbour and Wollongong.
