Your new home in Australia


Wollongong is the 3rd largest city in New South Wales. It is a 1hr 20 min drive from the centre of Sydney and a 2hr 30min journey to Canberra. Wollongong is adorned by stunning beaches of the South Coast with forest hinterlands on the western hills. There are excellent private schools here and an excellent University. The city is a gateway south to the beautiful national marine and land parks for camping, surfing or luxurious accommodation visits. I used to work one day a week in Wollongong and as a family we loved the region for its beaches, camp sites and so on.


This really is one of Australia’s most desirable places to live and work in. Sydney is on your doorstep in Wollongong but you don’t have to pay Sydney house prices to live there.
