Gerroa is the closest town to Seven Mile Beach National Park, a grand and inspiring sweep of sand with an extensive dune system and a wealth of bird and mammal life. Grand forests and native vegetation back this spectacular beach. Spend the day swimming, surfing or windsurfing, or for something more leisurely hire a canoe and paddle your way up Crooked River. Gerroa is close to some of Illawarra's prime attractions including wineries, quaint country towns and historic attractions. Nearby Gerringong and Kiama are definitely worth a visit.
