I live on Warilla beach which starts at the mouth ofLake Illawarra. The Illawarra is a regional name that covers the greater suburbs of Wollongong, Shell Harbour, Jamberoo and Kiama. However I do travel further south through Berry, Gerringong, Nowra and onto Jervis Bay.
The region has picturesq parks, untouched National Parks and protected Marine Reserves. We are within 10 minutes of farmland and country properties.
Swim in our beaches, you will be amazed by the white sands and the fact you can still see your feet in shoulder deep water. All Wollongong and Shellharbour beachers are patrolled 7 days per week, for your safety.
Wollongong is NSW's biggest city other than Sydney itself. If you like the hustle and bustle, shopping nightlife, restaurants, art galleries, museums you are bound to find it Wollongong.
A visit to the Shell Harbour foreshore will give you a different feel again. hand made produce, fine Dining and boutique shopping are my favourites.
Protected by a mountain range, providing the a scenic escarpement, lookouts, viewing stations and lining this beautiful coastline with Rainforest. The South Cost is known for it's contrast of green and blue.
Where else can you see so much diversity in such a small region?
Here are some of my favourites:
