Things To Do
Everything you need to know about things to do in Berry, Kangaroo Valley and the surrounding area during your stay
The Drawing Rooms
The Drawing Rooms is the best spot to stay for the spectacular Drawing Room Rocks walk, and the perfect base to explore Berry, Kangaroo Valley or our local beaches. But if you fancy taking things really easy, it’s a wonderful spot to just sit and unwind on the deck, take a leisurely walk around the gardens or curl up with a movie from our DVD library.
The village of Berry is truly unique in Australia, with a rail link to Sydney, gorgeous beaches, rolling green countryside, specialty stores, boutique restaurants and cafés, heritage buildings, and of course, friendly locals. We’ve put together a (non-exhaustive!) list of a few things you can do in Berry and the surrounding area. Feel free to drop us an email or ask us at check-in if you have any questions or would like further detail on anything at all.
The Berry village website is also a great source of ideas – it has wonderful detail on things to do, and events that are on throughout the year in our lovely village.

Surrounding the eastern side of the homestead is a patchwork of hedged gardens showcasing everything from a detailed knot garden, exquisite swimming pool and pavilion, sculptures demanding centre stage.
