Each year on the 26th January the town of Berrima holds a big Australia Day celebration. It is a fantastic day in town, great for the family. There are events throughout the day including a market in the park, official ceremony, parade through town, music in the park and a jumping castle and farmyard nursery to keep the kids happy. While in town why not also check out the Berrima District Museum, the Courthouse Museum or Harpers Mansion - these museums and historic house give you a taste of the history of Berrima and are very enjoyable to visit, Harpers mansion even has a small maze (great for the kids). All the shops are open throughout the town. Berrima Patchwork will be open from 10am till 3pm so make sure you come by.
There is a road closure of the Old Hume Highway through the town of Berrima (between Oxley St and Oldbury Rd) prior to the Parade from 11:45am and then it re-opens just after the Parade has been through, so if you plan on coming by car make sure you are there no latter than 11:30!
