Gerringong is also within easy reach of Sydney - less than a two-hour drive away; yet it might as well be another world. Be sure to sample the wines at Crooked River Winery and browse through the Gerringong Heritage Museum. Don't miss one of the best picnic spots around, at Boat Harbour Reserve, from where you can take a stroll along the rock platform.
Be sure to also check out Werri Beach. Werri is distinguished by having point breaks at both ends of the beach, so there's often a nice wave peeling nicely off either the north or south headland. Smooth even when the summer nor'easter is blowing, the north point starts to break across the rocky reef that extends from the headland, then generates a fatter wave closer to shore that's beloved of long-boarders.
You'll find a variety of accommodation in Gerringong from hotels and self contained apartments to camping and bed & breakfast options.
