Coastal Australia

Gerringong is a picture postcard coastal town located on the NSW Southcoast about 1.5 hours south of Sydney.

While most of the NSW coastline is being over developed, Gerringong is one of those places that retains the elements of a true coastal idyll.

Set off the main highway, the town has maintained a layback country style and sense of community that it is the envy of many.

Add to that the fact that its beach, Werri Beach, is renowned as the best surf beach on the NSW South Coast.

Werri (originally known as Ourie Beach) is a beautiful classic Australian beach with its pristine sands stretched out between two rock headlands with a magnificent rock pool on the rock shelf of the southern end and a wonderful lagoon at the northern end. Sydney’s Northern Beaches stretches along the beautiful coastline from Manly as far north as Palm Beach and is a mecca for beach lovers not only on the Northern Beaches, but great Sydney as well as Australian and International visitors.

Manly Beach, probably the most famous, is easily accessed from Sydney via the iconic Many Ferry and is one of the most photographed regions of Sydney.

The coastal feel comes alive pre-dawn with surfers, Surf Lifesavers and fitness enthusiasts going about their daily ritual to the rhythm of the ocean; under a glorious rising sun.
