Berrima Residents Association

The BRA, founded in 1983, is comprised of residents interested in preserving the unique character and heritage of this Village. This includes the natural and visual landscapes, built structures, proposed developments and the social benefits that go with living in a small village.

The Association meets in the Anglican Church Hall, on the first Thursday of the month – a reminder notice is placed on the Village Noticeboard, within the Post Office. Everyone is welcome to attend and encouraged to join.

It is up to those of us who live and work in the Village, to actively seek to maintain the unique status of Berrima as an item of colonial history that remains largely intact, after more than 150 years.
This does not happen by accident. Concerted efforts to resist over development have resulted in preserving the streetscape of original sandstone cottages, more ‘stately’ homes, the Court House, Berrima Gaol, the historic inns and Harper’s Mansion, the currently named Vault House and many other items of interest surviving from colonial and later times. As a result, the Village attracts many tourists which has contributed significantly to it being named, Best Australian Tourist Small Town 2021.

Protecting the natural environment is also a priority. The Association works with Boral to maintain the air quality around the New Berrima cement plant, supports Berrima Bushcare and Landcare groups and regularly monitors in the platypus the Wingecarribee River.

The Association is also the custodian of the WWII memorial planation on the Old Hume Highway at the Medway roundabout. Currently we are also working on a planting scheme for trees along the line of the Old Hume Highway following the award of $20,000 from the QEII Jubilee Planting Fund. The Association also stages Berrima’s annual ANZAC and Remembrance Day ceremonies.
It is in all our interests, both commercial and residential, to promote and enhance this wonderful Village.

Please consider getting involved, as it is a great way to meet people. For more information don’t hesitate to call Eric on 0409 8233 861 or www.bra.org.au
