Berrima, Regional NSW

Berrima is a historic village in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. The village, once a major town, is located 90 minutes south of Sydney on the Old Hume Highway and is an ideal stopping off point along the drive to Canberra. Berrima is full of well maintained historical buildings including the Courthouse which was completed in 1838, the Gaol in 1839, and the Surveyor of General Inn (pub) which has been continuously licensed since 1839.

In regards to food, Eschalot Restaurant [24 Old Hume Highway], Stones Patisserie [11 Old Hume Highway] and Josh’s Cafe [2/9 Old Hume Highway] keep the locals and visitors well fed, alternatively book a table at Berkelouw Book Barn five minutes north of town or the charming The Shaggy Cow in nearby Mittagong.
