Silos Berry is opened 7 days a week from 11am to 5pm and if in a group I recommend booking a tasting at the cellar door where your host provides descriptive and entertaining information about the array of wines available from the seven varieties of grapes grown on this stunning 12 acre property. If you'd like to purchase their wine, drop in any time. Established as a dairy in 1870, many of the old farm buildings remain on the estate. Today, Silos is a carbon neutral wine estate that includes a working alpaca farm, and of course, the views are stunning!!

Sightseeing
Stroll, run, walk the dog or ride your bike while enjoying the sights of local beaches, ancient rock formations and the expansive Pacific Ocean with its wildlife of migrating whales (between May and November), dolphins and seals. This 22km undulating hike from Werri Beach to Minnamurra River can be broken down for shorter or longer hikes and I recommend the 6km heritage walk (history and geology explained every kilometre) from Werri Lagoon to Loves Bay and back (12kms) which is easily achieved in half a day. Take water, wear sunscreen and a hat and comfortable footwear.
