Berry is a small Australian town in the Shoalhaven region of the NSW South Coast in the state of New South Wales, located 145km south of the state capital, Sydney. It has many historical buildings which are listed on the New South Wales Heritage Register. The village is surrounded by rich dairy country and has become famous for its local Produce Market which is held twice a month.HistoryThe indigenous people of the area were the Wodi Wodi people. In the 1810s, George William Evans, Government Surveyor, reported on the Berry district as a possible settlement and on the good stands of red cedar. Subsequently, itinerant timber cutters visited to cut and send cedar to Sydney.Alexander Berry, with his business partner Edward Wollstonecraft, pioneered European settlement in the Shoalhaven region in 1822. The locality was known as Broughton Creek from its beginning in 1825 as a private town and part of a large rural grant holding called "Coolangatta".The first settlers of this town were seven free sawyers employed by Alexander Berry. They camped here in 1825. Soon after a tannery began operation. In the 1840s a saw mill powered by a water wheel started. By 1866 a very substantial town had grown on the either side of Broughton Creek. On the Pulman Street side a Post Office, school, tannery and store were established and on the other side of the creek an Inn was opened. By this time the population had grown to 300 and the area was declared a Municipality.In 1873 Alexander Berry died and his brother David Berry became the owner of the estate. He encouraged the growth of the town by establishing an Agricultural Showground and giving land to four religious denominations to build churches in the town.
