THINGS TO DO NEAR INDIA

India, less than two hours from Sydney, is in a gourmet pocket brimming with delicious wines, cafes, restaurants and sweets shops - what's not to love! For the adventurous and beach-lovers this area is one of the most picturesque in Australia and offers stunning beaches,  scenic hikes and much more.

Wine and Food

The Shoalhaven Coast Wine Region is one of Australia’s lesser-known wine regions but is home to some truly fantastic wineries. Tiny house India sits on one of the region’s most highly awarded wineries, hiding up the back of the property just beyond the vines.

Not far away, set on the top of a ridge is one of the most beautiful wineries in the region, Two Figs. Not only is their wine top-notch, but you can enjoy your tasting outside enjoying their magnificent views along with a local cheese and charcuterie board (bookings here are essential during busier periods).

How about some fresh Sydney Rock or Pacific Oysters by the sea? Jim Wilds Oysters is the place! Jim Wilds Oysters is a working oyster farm where you can sit by the ocean and eat the freshest oysters of your life. Bring along a nice bottle of wine and you’re on to a winner (note that Jim’s is closed between July and August each year).

If you’re more of a sweet tooth, head to The Treat Factory in Berry where you can enjoy their handmade chocolates and confectionery. They have a delicious onsite café, the Dairy Bar, where you can sample their treats, enjoy a milkshake or indulge in a meal showcasing local and seasonal produce.

Antiques

Berry is also renowned for its antique shopping. Two of the most famous are Broughton’s Antiques and Claringbold’s Small Antiques. Whether you are looking to purchase or simply window shopping, you can’t go past a visit to this beautiful and quaint town.

Outdoors

If adventure is more your thing, you cannot miss a visit to The Grotto in Nowra. This takes its name from a large overhanging rock and boasts 45 metre zig-zagging tracks that lead from cliff’s edge down to the Shoalhaven River. The walk itself is a 2km loop and is a perfect spot to take a picnic and enjoy the serene surroundings. The Jervis Bay National Park combines the best of crystal clear oceans with powder-white sand, forests, woodlands and wetlands. If you’re bringing the young ones with you, the Shoalhaven Zoo is worth a stop!
