Beautiful village in sought after centre of Berry community
RFBI Berry Masonic Village is nestled in lovely grounds located in a quiet street area of Berry, a beautiful small town just two hours drive south of Sydney and only 17km from the regional town of Nowra. The Berry district is peaceful and welcoming, with tree-lined streets and very little back-street traffic, making it ideal for short strolls or longer walks. The town itself has a wide variety of shops and a small supermarket. You will be able to visit these on one of our regular bus trips.
All bedrooms look out to our beautiful gardens or courtyard so you can sit outside and enjoy the weather. We encourage you to bring treasured items from home to make your room more like home and we provide picture rails to hang artwork or photos of loved ones to personalise your room. A TV antenna outlet and a phone plug are installed for your convenience.

As of the 1st July 2014, new residents have greater choice on how to pay for their accommodation costs. These choices include;
- Residents can choose to pay for accommodation by a refundable deposit (RAD) paid as a lump sum,
- A daily payment (DAP), or
- A combination of both
A daily accommodation payment accrues daily and is paid periodically (e.g. fortnightly). A combination payment includes both a partial lump sum and daily.
As RFBI offers a variety of accommodation options and prices we encourage you and your family to discuss your needs with a financial adviser to ensure that you are receiving the best financial outcome available to you.
Our published Accommodation Payment prices are our maximum rates and will apply for those with adequate financial means. Residents with limited assets may be eligible for support by the Government.
This means that you will not be required to pay the Accommodation Payment. If you are not supported but affordability is still a factor, be assured this will not necessarily affect your eligibility for accommodation.
The Room Prices (RAD) and Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) amounts quoted above are current as of today and may change (in line with interest rate adjustments) for entry dates after the 1st July. When there are changes to the interest rate, RFBI will update the new DAP based on the new quarterly interest rate.
Additional services (ie not including the accommodation price for the room) associated with the room
At this Village we are pleased offer an Additional Services Package at a cost of $12 per day that is payable by all non-supported residents. This includes a 43″ Smart TV, unlimited WiFi internet access, themed village events, wine or beer/soft drinks with lunch, weekly family happy hour and local entertainers. More details are available at the village. Other services that you can access at additional cost include hairdressing, café/kiosk purchases, telephone connection and line rental and Foxtel connection.

RFBI Berry Masonic Village is located in the picturesque village of Berry on the South Coast of NSW. The village is truly part of the community, having been inspired and initiated by Berry residents. The idea for support for a village originated with the Berry Garden Club, and the first plans were developed in 1995. By July, 1995, the residential care village was open to the public, and officially opened on 1st November, 1997.
