Now, i’ll start this one off by saying that Jerrymara is not easy on the hip pocket. It’ll cost you $1,650 a night. But hey, it’s worth it.

Jerrymara is a huge rural property that’s close to some amazing beaches. So if you’ve got the cash to splash, it’s definitely a great spot to base yourself while you explore the Illawarra region.

Outside the country garden is a further 50 acres of calming rural space where you can stroll, picnic or relax. There are magnificent views up and down the Illawarra coastline from the upper paddocks at Jerrymara and easy access over the farm.
