Jerrymara Farm is a luxury rural property close to beautiful beaches, which is outstanding & unequalled in the Gerringong - Berry area. It is perhaps the most serene and private rural retreat of this quality so close to the southern edge of Sydney. Jerrymara Farm is less that 2 hours drive from Sydney International Airport and caters for family getaways and memorable holidays, small corporate off-sites, TV and film production and weekends away for golfing, wine tasting or other pursuits. Weddings have been held at Jerrymara Farm and may be available STCA in the future.
Jerrymara Farm is a tranquil and luxuriously appointed rural haven sitting within a huge and magnificent formal country garden of some 4 acres, surrounded by 52 lush rural farmland acres and other beautiful farms, yet only a few minutes drive to the beautiful beaches of Gerringong, Kiama and Gerroa. All modern conveniences and attractions such as supermarkets, coffee shops, boutiques, shopping & golf courses are minutes away in the pretty rural seaside towns of Gerringong, Gerroa, Kiama and Berry.
Jerrymara Farm consists of two modern and luxuriously appointed farm cottages set about 60 metres apart in the complete privacy of a large and opulent manicured country garden. The gardens have design notes from landscape architect Hans Smit and were implemented by the current owner with project assistance by Tony Lameri of renowned Berry area landscapers Lameri Gardens. The setting is reminiscent of a large formal balanced country garden, such as many that are found in Europe and others in Australia built by designers such as Paul Bangay.
Jerrymara Farm is a verdant & private location suitable for family escapes & holidays, getaways with groups of friends, small corporate events, wine tours and golfing groups etc., Wedding, events and function bookings have been discontinued at present whilst a local Council DA is considered. It is nonetheless a perfect place for a group to stay whilst attending weddings and receptions elsewhere in the Illawarra or Shoalhaven districts. Small daytime Events are possible at the discretion of the owners (extra fees apply).
We would like to stress on guests and prospective guests that Jerrymara Farm is located in a quiet rural-residential/dairy farming valley. The privacy and peaceful amenity of our neighbours is paramount to us. Loud noise, amplified music - especially outside - and disturbing neighbours through cars parked on the public road is strongly discouraged.

In the Area around Jerrymara Farm - There's so much to do and Everything's on offer nearby...
Jerrymara Farm has fantastic proximity to the finest beaches of the Illawarra coast south of Sydney such as Seven Mile Beach at Gerroa, Werri Beach at Gerringong and beautiful unspoilt and uncrowded beaches around Kiama, Minnamurra and Shoalhaven Heads. You have the best of both worlds, the sparkling Illawarra Coast and the traditional rural dairy farm feel with the friendly country bonhomie. The privacy is a feature yet the location ensures that great coffee, super-marketing and boutique shops are minutes away. Close by also are nice places to visit such as the townships of Berry, Kiama, Gerroa, Minnamurra and Kangaroo Valley, which is a bit further afield but an easy day trip - as is the Jamberoo Recreation Park & Minnamurra Rainforest.
Several good golf courses are in the area including the beautiful coastal links course 'Royal Gerringong'. There is quality site-roasted coffee in at the Gerringong Deli-Café. Gerringong also has two nice pizza places and a well-stocked IGA supermarket and bottle shop for all liquor supplies, not to mention the famous Werri Beach Fish & Chips.
