You will find more handmade goods at the Berry Country Fair, held on the first Sunday of every month at the Berry Showground. Purchase anything from exquisite local honey to bargain-priced antiques.
Need a break? Wet your whistle at the iconic Great Southern Hotel, a classic Australian pub with wide timber verandahs, hearty bistro meals and a play area for the kids.
For a food and wine excursion visit the Silos Restaurant, found in a beautiful local vineyard on the outskirts of Berry. The Berry Sourdough Bakery and Cafe is a great place to grab wood-fired pastries, bread or coffee. Or enjoy modern Asian cuisine, and some very popular dumplings, at the Hungry Duck restaurant.
