About our House: Built in 1905, a lovely weatherboard home, renovated and extended in character with the original house. The house sleeps 6 plus a fold down sofa bed for an additional 2. Full of character, light, with views of Mount Keira, the escarpment and our lush garden. We live in a beautiful part of the Illawarra, where the mountains meet the sea. We are 5 minutes drive to clean patrolled beaches, the Wollongong Lighthouse and Harbour, a 15 minute walk to Wollongong's finest cafes, restaurants and shops. There is also a free shuttle bus that can take you to all the beaches and town centre. We are a 10 minute walk to Wollongong train station that can take you directly to Sydney airport in 1 hour and 20 minutes and a further 10 minutes to Sydney Central. Alternatively we are an 1.5 hour drive to Sydney along the freeway and only 45 minutes south to Berry and SW to the Southern Highlands.
We are close to Illawarra's most beautiful beaches, namely North Beach and Port Kembla. They are great for swimming and surfing. There are many bush walking tracks at nearby Mount Keira and the escarpment. The Royal National Park is 30 minutes north of here. The Grand Pacific Drive leads you past seaside villages to Wollongong Harbour which features a lighthouse and dramatic views of the escarpment and coastline. Simply stunning. Continuing 30 minutes south of Wollongong takes in the picturesque seaside villages and dairy country of the south coast towns of Shellharbour, Gerringong, Kiama, Jamberoo and the historic village of Berry. There is a major water fun park at Jamberoo.
