Location

Gerroa, New South Wales, Australia

Southerly Change is located in Gerroa, a small town situated at the northern end of picturesque Seven Mile Beach, adjacent to Gerringong on the NSW South Coast. It’s a beautiful place for a getaway year-round with its gorgeous combination of ocean and rural views.

Gerroa is less than a two hour drive from the centre of Sydney (only 70 minutes from Sutherland).

Southerly Change is within a short stroll of Gerroa’s most popular spots.

Seven Mile beach - 350m (less than 5 minutes walk) - patrolled during peak times; Crooked River joins the beach and is ideal for young children with its shallow, calm water. The beach & river are popular for swimming, windsurfing, surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, snorkelling, kayaking, diving, boating & fishing. Canoes can be hired & there’s a boat ramp nearby.

Emery Park & Playground – 200m – shaded by towering Norfolk Island Pine trees and adjacent to the river, this park includes a play structure, covered & uncovered tables, BBQs and toilets.

Seahaven Café & Blue Swimmer restaurant - 150m – award winning dining for lunch and dinner as well as a delicious take-away menu.

Gerroa General Store & Post Office – 420m - it’s the only shop in Gerroa! Handy place to pick up extra groceries, grab an iceblock or send a postcard.

Gerroa Fishermans Club – 550m – great food paired with stunning ocean views, always popular with locals.

WHERE DO I GET GROCERIES & OTHER STUFF?
The nearby General Store is perfect if you only need a few basic items & don't want to drive. For more substantial shopping, Gerringong is your best bet. Its only a 5 minute drive, and includes a supermarket, cafes, restaurants and many other lovely stores.

WHATS WORTH VISITING IN THE AREA?
Once you've explored nearby Gerringong & its gorgeous Werri beach, visit the beautiful seaside township of Kiama & the famous Blowhole - it's only a 15 minute drive. The delightful rural towns of Berry (12 minutes) and Kangaroo Valley (35 minutes) are also work a trip during your stay. There are quite a few wineries nearby - the historic Coolangatta Estate is only 10 minutes away. Get back to nature on the Coastal Track or one of the many other area walks. Or if you're after some serious fun, hit the water slides & other rides at Jamberoo Action Park. It's only a 30 miute drive. (URL HIDDEN)

WHAT CAN I DO IN COOLER WEATHER?
There's plenty to do out of the water, making Gerroa a great place to stay year-round. Explore local antique stores, galleries & wineries. Try bicycle or horse rides, golf, bowls, fishing, tennis, squash, bird watching, walks, and of course, dining out. If the ocean is a little nippy, you can always swim at the Kiama Leisure Centre’s heated indoor pool.

I'm a Sydneysider who loves the NSW South Coast and recently realized my dream of buying a property in the gorgeous seaside village of Gerroa, within a short walk of the beach. Work prevents my family & me from moving there ourselves (yet!), but in the meantime, my husband & I have poured our heart & soul (& bank accounts!!) into renovating the house and have now decided to make it available for others to enjoy (until that much-anticipated time when we can move in ourselves!). I gave up my Brand Management job when I had kids during a 7-year stint in San Francisco. Now I run a volunteer mentoring program at a local school and have realized my passion of starting a garden design business. I've enjoyed reinventing the garden at Southerly Change from the jungle it was when we bought it. Its still a work-in-progress, but it has quickly become established. The huge back yard was one of the reasons we bought the house, and outdoor space is one of the things I look for myself when researching places to stay. I've got two boys and they need space to run around! I love to travel in the USA & Europe and am a huge fan of retro travel posters, so had to restrain myself from wallpapering the house with them! There's plenty of my favourites on the walls throughout the house, and that sets the tone for the rest of the furniture and decor. So I'd say the house has a retro-seaside kind of feel to it without a lot of overtly 'coastal' decor (you won't find surfboard tables, driftwood furniture or boat-shaped bookcases!). One thing I've learnt about myself is I hate to chase people to do things they've said they're going to do. I really can't stand businesses who take forever to reply, don't admit their mistakes, and don't keep me informed as a customer. I don't want to be like that - so will do everything I can to make booking & staying at Southerly Change as enjoyable, straightforward and hassle-free as possible, even though I can't be there in-person to meet all my guests.
