"Berry NSW"

Berry is quiet and extremely safe town to live in. It’s well known for its shopping and home wares stores, we get lots of visitors from Sydney every weekend to our little town.
It’s a rural environment with lots of quaint homes and very friendly people. We have all age groups here, with a very progressive primary school. The train station means you are only a short trip away from the big smoke.

If you are looking to move to Berry or are thinking of investing in a holiday home or investment property, give me yell, I will be able to help you out.

"It's a great place to raise a family and/or retire"

On the beautiful south coast of NSW approx. 2 hours drive from Sydney, Berry is a small but picturesque town. as a favorite weekend destination, it has more than its fair share of good cafe's and stores.

It has a bank, post office, and wonderful primary school established in 1860. the children enjoy the pleasures of a relaxed traditional small town life, walking to school, surrounded by the rural vistas. there is also pre-school and employment opportunities in larger cities nearby.

Berry is also a popular retirement destination, with a hostel and two over 55's developments. there will be plenty of business opportunities to cater to this market in the near future, as these developments are completed and occupied.

All that, and it's only half an hour to at least a few surf beaches, 45 minutes to Jervis Bay, 1 hour to Bowral, 2 1/2 hours to Canberra, and 40 minutes to Wollongong.
