"North Wollongong - perfect for young professionals, students and beach lovers!"

We own an investment property in North Wollongong, ca. 2 minutes walk from the beach. Due to its proximity to the CBD, the university and a free bus to the city, North Wollongong is popular among students and professionals. There is also a train station. There are a few eateries, but the immediate neighbourhood could do with a proper supermarket so residents do not have to use an expensive corner shop.
Pros
  • Close to the beach
  • Close to the University of Wollongong
  • Central to everything wollongong
  • Public transport is everywhere (trains, buses etc)
  • Safe area (never had anything stolen)
Cons
  • Parking is a bit sparse (if you dont have a driveway)

"Central Location To Everything You Need In Life!"

I live in Noel Street in North Wollongong and LOVE IT! I work full time and attend uni as well so I have a pretty hectic lifestyle. What makes North Wollongong a perfect place to live is that it is central to everything, the beach, pubs, shops, uni, hospital. It takes 3 mintues by car to get onto the freeway in the morning, 5 minutes to walk to the beach and one minute to walk to the pub.
Pros
  • Central to everything wollongong
  • Safe area (never had anything stolen)
  • Public transport is everywhere (trains, buses etc)
Cons
  • Parking is a bit sparse (if you dont have a driveway)
  • Can be noisy on weekends
