So much to explore in the Illawarra Shoalhaven region

There are hidden gems all around the Illawarra Shoalhaven area: the white sands of Jervis Bay, the famous Kiama Blowhole, diving and snorkeling at Killalea Reserve, artist Arthur Boyd’s historic Bundanon Homestead near Nowra, Australia’s last surviving wooden suspension bridge in Kangaroo Valley. And just 85km south of Sydney lies the region’s capital: the city of Wollongong, where you can enjoy the convenience of city life without the crowds.

Enjoy the villages of the Southern Highlands, dine at celebrity chef Rick Stein’s Bannisters, go hang-gliding at Stanwell Park, learn to surf on the many dazzling NSW South Coast beaches, or take a tour Port Kembla Steelworks. It’s easy to maintain work-life balance here with shorter commute times, plentiful childcare and educational options, including the University of Wollongong, a variety of affordable housing, cultural and sporting activities to participate in.
