Berry is a small town renowned for its rural allure, accessibility, culture, and tradition with a magical touch of natural beauty. This little haven is located at about one hundred miles from Sydney, Australia. As the town history goes, its aboriginals were called the Wodi Wodi tribe. It became a major supplier of timber to Sydney because of its abundance on red cedar trees in the 1800s. The name of the town was derived from a pioneer family who settled back in the early nineteenth century for business purposes.
And as tourism became an important aspect of the Berry economy, the town was known for other economic activities such as timber-cutting, dairy farming, and tannery. Consequently, local farmers changed small farms into tourist attractions in order to cater to the ever-increasing demand for sightseeing services all over the town. Opportunely, they have not been disappointed in doing this as tourists keep streaming into Berry all-year round.
