Simple pleasures to brighten your weekend
Berry, NSW Have you been to Berry? Berry is a charming small town located in the Southern Highlands of NSW and being only 153kms from Sydney it is a good option for a day trip. To me, Berry is a happy town. It is the kind of place that you can lighten up with good food, taking a slow stroll around and shop for some appealing home wares.
For full review and details, you can read it here.
Stroll down Queen Street to look at attractive buildings
Depending on your mood, you can start from the Princess Hwy and Prince Alfred Street intersection and make your way down to Queen Street. Berry is a pretty town and full of interesting scenes making it a photographer's shooting paradise.
Along Queen Street there are a number of specialty shops that are worth a peek. There are also many cute home-ware shops that are scattered around in Berry and also make sure to check out the small lanes.
Munch on a donut or two at "The Famous Berry Donut Van"
After perusing the Queen Road shops it may be time for a donut or two. Located near the iconic pole and Berry bottle shop is the famous donut shop, so do pop in for a little sweet indulgence. The donuts are cook to orders so they are hot, fresh, fluffy and slightly coated with sugar. Simply scrumptious.
