How to Get to Gerroa

The easiest and quickest way to get to a holiday park in Gerroa is to drive there. After all, it’s the easiest way to transport any luggage or gear that you’re taking with you. Having a car is also super convenient if you want to explore the South Coast beyond Gerroa.

It’s even possible to use public transport but we don’t recommend it as services are limited, which can make for a slow and tedious journey. But, if you have no choice, from Sydney, it’s best to catch a train to Kiama Station or Gerringong Station. From either of those stations, you can catch a bus to Gerroa, where you won’t be too far from either holiday park. We recommend using the Transport NSW Trip Planner or app to help plan your journey.

Car Hire

If you don’t have your own car, you should hire one using Discover Cars. Personally, we use Discover Cars and highly recommend them for finding your ideal car hire at an affordable price. Booking online is super easy and the free cancellation policy is great.

To find out more about renting a car with Discover Cars, read our Discover Cars review and Discover Cars Insurance review.
