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.

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.

Berry isn't actually in the Southern Highlands, it's on the South Coast of NSW. But otherwise, this is an accurate article.

For the more physically active, there's a lot of good cycling to do in the area too.
