The Co-Op Gerringong


Building the future of a local treasure. The Co-Op Gerringong is an industrial building combining its history with a modern twist, this multipurpose venue will be a landmark wedding, event, live music and community space. Steeped in Dairy history, The NSW South Coast’s newest venue will breathe a new lease of life from March 2024!

In February 1888 the Gerringong Co-Operative Dairy Society was formed and until it closed its doors a few years ago it was the oldest continually-operating dairy co-operative in Australia. The Co-operative began operations in a timber building erected by J B Taylor on the site of the present Mayflower Retirement Village. Directors were Messrs. G J Hindmarsh, Miller, Lee, Bailey, Jordan, Maynes, Wilson, Rutledge and Sharpe.

In June 1908 the Co-op was transferred to a brick building near the local railway station. With the extension of the line from Kiama to Bomaderry in 1893, it was now possible for the co-op to have its rail siding. A produce store was added in 1935, with hardware, building supplies and other merchandising outlets appearing in the 1970s, with a further extension in 1982. Source: Kiama Library
