Walks

The most difficult decision you will have to make is which walk to do.

The walks are varied in length and scenery. You can stroll a kilometre down the beach to our famous Mermaid rocks. Marvel at how the sea crashes over the rocks into rock pools. After the weather has been wild and the tide is high, this is a magnificent spectacle.

Or take the longer walk past mermaid to Monument Lake, where the Walter Hood sank in 1853 claiming a dozen lives. If you have more energy, continue either along the ocean or behind the sand dunes and bush to Bendalong for lunch. You will encounter small pristine beaches.

Other walks take you through Conjola National Park to Fisherman’s Rock or walk via the bush walking tracks for coffee at Swan Lake.

We are able to provide a picnic hamper for your day’s outing if you wish.

 

Massage & Pampering

Which do you prefer, lying on a massage table being pampered with the sun on your back while you enjoy the magnificent view from the balcony on your cabin or, in winter, lie in front of the cosy gas log fire while you are gently massaged until your relaxation is complete. Each cabin has a two person spa. We can arrange a whole range of spa, beauty and relaxation treatments to cater for your beauty and relaxation needs and your budget.

 

Fishing

The choices are many.

Do you want to fish for salmon and whiting from Berrara Beach? There is nothing more enjoyable than watching the sun set standing on the beach beside your fishing rod. You will have either bought your bait from nearby bait shops or you will have caught your own nippers or worms from Berrara beach or creek.

Perhaps you prefer rock fishing. There is bait on the rocks and as a rock fishing place, Berrara is relatively safe. Rock fishing is popular at Berrara and there are usually fish to be caught. Or perhaps throwing a line into the creek from Fisherman’s Rock or a boat is your preferred style of fishing. Flathead, mullet and bream breed in Berrara creek and provide meals for many families.

If you do not have your own fishing gear, cheap fishing tackle, a license and bait is available at Sussex Inlet, a five minute drive from Berrara.

Surfing & Paddleboarding

Berrara is the ideal location to learn stand up paddleboarding.

Berrara lagoon is the ideal place for calm water to learn to stand and paddle the board. When you have confidently mastered standing and paddling you are ready for the surf. At the entrance to Berrara creek is a very small rolling wave. The wave rolls for a long distance and is ideal for the beginner to learn to ride the surf. With this mastered, you can move further along the beach to the breaking wave offshore suitable for the experienced paddler.

Paddle board hire and lessons are available.

Berrara Beach provides a range of surfing options for the beginner to the advanced surfer.

For the beginner, a surf school operates at Berrara Beach. For those more experienced there are breaks further down the beach and reef breaks off the rock ledge. Famous surfer of yester year, Robert Conneally, cut his teeth surfing the reefs around Berrara. Why mix with the crowds when you and a few mates can have the surf to yourself. The extensive surf means Berrara is never crowded.
