INTRODUCING THE SOUTH COAST

Where the ocean meets the rolling green hills, the South Coast of NSW is magical and diverse. This guide is dedicated to the close knit southern gems of Berry, Kiama, Gerringong and Gerroa.

This is a destination for all seasons, whether you want to cosy up by the fire with a bold red, or bask in the sun on a stretch of white sand.

With a selection of quaint cottages, historic homesteads and pristine beach houses, the South Coast is a getaway for singles, lovers and families.

Roam is all about exploring the area and as these towns are so closely located you can really have the best of it all.

Enjoy this piece of paradise.
