What is the best suburb in Wollongong for a couple of young professionals?

We are in our early/mid twenties and moving from Wellington in New Zealand to Wollongong in the coming months. Unfortunately we don't know much about the area so I've been furiously googling for the last month to find more info...any help or suggestions are appreciated.

It seems like Wollongong is full of young families, students, and retirees so most of the information I have found is targeted at those groups...

My partner will be working at both the Wollongong Hospital as well as in Nowra at a regional hospital. I'd likely have to get a job in Sydney so we need a location that balances both commutes.

Can I get some advice on good suburbs for us to live in? Good access to transport links is a must, but equally we want to be able to head to the beach as often as possible. Any advice on suburbs to avoid would in particular be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi, if you're looking to be within walking distance to the beach or the CBD you're best off looking in Wollongong or North Wollongong, most properties in this area are units, nice houses can be a little expensive. Mangerton, Towradgi, Balgownie, West Wollongong, and Figtree amongst others are all nice suburban areas within 5-10 minutes of Wollongong CBD, they are also handy to stations and freeway access.
