Gerringong is the first coastal town south of Kiama, and considerably quieter than it's northern neighbour. It completely surrounds the beach suburb of Werri Beach. Gerringong derives from the Aboriginal word meaning "fearful place".
Gerringong is the next station on the train line south from Kiama. You'll have to change trains at Kiama to the diesel service, that only connects with every second Kiama train. Alternatively, the town is a very short deviation from the Princes Hwy heading south.
It is a couple of kilometre walk down the hill from the station to the beach. There is a shared (bicycle/pedestrian) pathway on the footpath adjacent to the road down the hill, but usually the roads a quiet enough to make them a safer alternative for bicycles.
