I have always loved escaping down the south coast of New South Wales whenever things get too hectic for me in Sydney, even if it can only be for the day. The drive down is stunning with green rolling hills on one side and the ocean and beaches on the other, and the towns are filled with some of my favourite homewares and book stores. Kiama and Gerringong have amazing artisan markets, and both of these towns as well as Berry have boutique stores with very affordable prices- you’re sure to find some treasures! Rain or shine Berry is still a gorgeous town to visit.
Some of my absolute favourite stores are Haven and Space, Few and Far, Cabana Jo’s, The Bead Bar, Shady Fig, Moss Nest, Goldfish Toy Store- just to name a few (some of the other names are fuzzy because I tend to get lost wandering in and out of them all lol). I’m also loving the addition of This Old House Studio which also holds DIY classes- if only I lived closer!
Here are snippets of some treasures we found and delicious food we ate at Berry Hotel :)
