YOU WILL LOVE
- The beauty and seclusion of the bush, listening to birdsong and breeze swaying through the leaves

The distinctive Illawarra landscape is a narrow oasis cradled by the emerald escarpment on one side and lapped by the ocean on the other. Although the beach is what draws crowds from near and far, this home offers a chance to be captivated not only by the Tasman Sea but also by the towering escarpment.
This home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac within the escarpment hillside which it is safe enough for the kids to ride their bikes and scooters on the street while the back garden flows seamlessly into the Escarpment National Park. Bush bash for a bit of excitement or walk a few minutes around the corner to a bushland track that you can follow for over an hour exploring the native flora, birdlife and tiny creatures.
However, when you are ready to hit the beach, the coast is an endless stretch of rock pools, calm flat ocean or rolling waves for those with a board and energy to burn. If taking in the views are more your thing - ride, walk or run the bike track all the way to Wollongong and stop to refuel with coffee and cake or take a cool dip.
Bulli is a charming village complete with bakery, butcher, cafe, farmers market, cellar, fruit market and fishmonger all within a 5-minute loop of each other. Park the car and walk away from your stresses and reclaim the simple pleasures of life.

Take a paddle board out on the glassy waters of Bulli beach in the early morning or catch the wind in the afternoon to clear out the cobwebs. Walk the canopy covered stairs to the boat sheds for great photos or a peaceful picnic.
The Bulli beach café sits just above the pool and the ocean and does wonders with fish and chips while Ruby’s a little further down serves up a killer burger. Or wander into the village for a drink, feed and live bands at legendary Heritage Hotel.
