Stay at the Berrima Bakehouse Motel in the centre of Berrima Village. Within easy walking distance to everything including specialty shops, restaurants, cafés and the pub. Walking is most definitely the best option to get around town, especially on the weekend when parking is a premium.
The Berrima region was originally inhabited by the indigenous “Gundungurra” people. European exploration of the area began as early as 1798. The Hume brothers passed through in 1814. John Oxley established a station after droving cattle here in search of new pastures in 1815.
Interesting fact: The Southern Highlands climate and rainfall is some of the most varied in Australia for such a small region. For example: on average Robertson gets 1659 mm rainfall per annum. Only 40 kilometres away in Joadja the average rainfall is 649mm– a difference of 1010mm!
