"country town atmosphere by the beach"

if you want to be away from most things, this is the place for you. Be prepared to travel at least half an hour to a decent sized shopping centre. The 'bends' road that links Gerringong to the north is its biggest downfall with regular accidents and traffic jams.
but beautiful scenery, lovely people and a small country town feel. Many people have been born and bred there and continue to stay. beaches are lovely. rentals are limited but well priced.

"Beautiful country town"

Gerringong is about a two hours' drive from Sydney. Visitors to Gerringong will be able to enjoy views of rolling hills and the beach. In Gerringong, you can golf, fish, sail, surf or visit the winery. You are able to access the famous Seven Mile Beach from here.

The people in town are really friendly and there are many shops for your entire daily needs too. I was there over the Easter long weekend and it was not as crowded as I had expected. The best part of Gerringong is that you can buy your lunch from one of the cafes and just sit on the hill overlooking the magnificent blue waters. If that is not life that what is?
