Berridale is a charming village found between Cooma and Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountains. The Main Street is lined with Poplar trees planted by local children in the 1930’s and is a lovely feature of the village. The presence of granite boulders are also characteristic of the area and are said to be formed by a large magma mass over 400 million years ago miles below the earths surface which gradually eroded and uplifted and eventually became exposed.
This is a spot you should most certainly make time stop and explore. The artist Lucy Rose has a studio in the Main Street. Enjoy a bite to eat and wine tasting at Shut The Gate Winery. Other places to eat are the Berridale Bakery and Whisk & Cocoa Cafe & Cake Parlour. You might find something gorgeous to take home at the Perfect Piece, Stone Cottage or the Alpine Emporium.
Something for the kids, take them to Lions Park, a playground and skate park with public toilets right next door. BBQ facilities are also available.
