About the location

Thirroul is a chilled, beautiful, very classic aussie coastal town. It is located about an hours drive south of Sydney right on the coast. The dramatic Illawarra escarpment is a backdrop and as such, Thirroul has not been over-developed and offers a uniqueness of unspoilt and quiet beaches. In fact, the illawarra coastal beaches has become somewhat of a haven for sydney siders wanting a 'sea change' but still offering close proximity to Sydney being only an hour away. The town is also eclectic enough to be able to spend a lazy afternoon enjoying one of the cool cafes or restaurants or going on a lovely coastal walk or bike ride. An easy drive in either direction will also open up a Pandoras box of country pubs or clubs. Wollongong is a 15 min drive away too.
This is an opportunity to enjoy both the classic beach style getaway yet as and when you want being in the heart of Sydney within 70 mins.
