Clyde River Berry Farm

Pick your own Berries at the Clyde River Berry Farm

If you are visiting Durras North over December and January, we highly recommend a visit to the Clyde River Berry Farm located just near the Shallow Crossing on the Clyde River. Apart from being able to pick blueberries straight off the tree, other fruits available for picking may include raspberries, strawerries and more. (Actual fruits may vary due to seasonal factors).

Though you can buy all kinds of fruit, homemade jams, honey or even your own blueberry plant, the best activity is to grab a bucket and go and pick your own. Your collection is then weighed and you pay for what you pick. Though it is very tempting, you are asked not to “sample” the fruits while harvesting them. The crops are valuable and an immense amount of work goes into the fruit production so you are asked to remember that the farm is a commercial enterprise. Besides, a blue tongued berry picker is quickly identified as not a “Berry nice person.”

The Clyde River Berry Farm supplies blueberries and other fruits to the Sydney Markets. The farm is located on the Clyde River on the NSW South Coast.

It can be hot so take plenty of sunscreen, a hat and sensible footwear. After all that hard work, highly recommended is their ice cream made from berries they have grown themselves. Absolutely delicious!

The Clyde River Berry Farm is less than a 30 minute drive from Durras North. Most of it is on an unsealed road but a 4WD is not necessary. If you want to do the a round trip, it is possible to cross the Clyde River at the Shallow Crossing and continue along to Nelligen and then on to Batemans Bay. Be warned though the Shallow Crossing at times may only be open to 4WD and in some instances, it will be closed to all traffic.
