A Guide to Gorgeous Gerringong

Perched on a dramatic cliff, overlooking the mighty Pacific Ocean, is Gerringong. Oozing with coastal charm, and only ninety minutes from Sydney, Gerringong has long been a favourite for surfers, and those keen to learn to surf. And there’s no better place to begin your surfing journey, than Surf Camp Australia. One of the state’s original surf schools, Surf Camp Australia caters to all ages and abilities, and offers comprehensive lessons on one of the state’s best and most consistent surf breaks, at Seven Mile Beach. For those wishing to stay longer, there’s also on-site accommodation available.

After a big day in the surf, a big feed is what you’ll need! For some top-notch pub grub, head straight to The Hill where they serve everything from classic burgers, to steaks, fish, and housemade pastas. At The Hill, the food is sensational, and so is the vibe and the view, out over one of the area’s most iconic spots, Werri Beach.

Gerringong is where the sea meets the mountains. And situated in the lush, undulating hills, rising above Gerringong, is Crooked River Wines. Family- owned, Crooked River produces a range of red, white, sparkling and fortified wines, from grapes grown on-site in the rich volcanic, alluvial soil. Visitors to the winery can sample the range of wines on offer, while enjoying the picturesque setting, looking out over the vineyard. Pair your wines with a delicious cheese plate, or enjoy more substantial meals, featuring local produce, in the restaurant.

After a big day of surfing, eating and wine-tasting, you’ll be keen to take a pause, and when you check into The Pause, that’s exactly what you’ll find. Built and styled by SOUL Home, The Pause is a 5 bedroom (each with their own ensuites) luxe, coastal holiday home with large communal spaces that open onto a stylish outdoor entertaining area, and pool. Whether you’re a family group, or a group of friends, The Pause is the ideal coastal getaway.
