A charming seaside town on a dramatic headland, Gerringong on the NSW South Coast is enticing with beautiful beaches, superb surf breaks, verdant countryside and delicious food and wine experiences. Enjoy postcard views of the sparkling ocean, rolling farmlands and vineyards, and the splendid escarpment.

In the pretty Kiama region, Gerringong is a short drive south from Kiama, 35 minutes from Wollongong and under two hours’ drive from Sydney. Take the marvellous Grand Pacific Drive route for scenic views. Or travel by train from Sydney’s Central Station — the lovely journey is 2h 30 min.

Sea Cliff Bridge - Grand Pacific Drive

Accommodation options include holiday houses with breathtaking views, seaside cottages, rural retreats and caravan and camping sites by Werri Beach, a top surfing beach and patrolled by lifeguards in warmer months. Point breaks are at either end of the beach, a popular picnic spot too.

At the southern end of the beach is Ourie Pool, a rock pool constructed in the 1930s. Nearby are amenities and a wading pool for children. Another delightful swimming spot is Boat Harbour Rock Pool, near Cooke Park, which has barbecue facilities, picnic tables and a children’s playground.

Gerringong Golf Club - Kiama

Just south of Gerringong is Seven Mile Beach, where Land’s Edge Surf School offers lessons on how to ride a surfboard. For surf gear, browse Natural Necessity in town. Golfers will enjoy the ocean views and beautifully manicured greens on the 18-hole course at Gerringong Golf Club.

There are plenty of tasty things to do too, from quality restaurants to the cellar doors of the Crooked River Winery and The Siding@Gerringong in the old Gerringong Dairy Co-op. Gerringong Bakery makes pies and pastries. Try the gourmet delights at The Schoolhouse, a historic schoolhouse, and enjoy cooking workshops at Buena Vista Farm. And check out the events calendar for high tea.
