"Central, convenient and quiet with all the facilities at your fingertips."

Quiet one-way street within 2 minute walk of the CBD. The street has only light traffic with a couple of small apartment blocks in the street, one that is in a battle-axe block (3 Thomas St) and set well back from the street. I lived in 3 Thomas Street from 2005 till 2008 and only left due to a move interstate. I could see the ocean from my bedroom (top floor) and loved being in walking distance to EVERYTHING! I didn't own a car so this was a big plus and very convenient for me. I would have bought if I could but realestate is difficult to find in this area so I had to rent (though the rent is quite high to its central location). Being on top of the hill meant it always received the ocean breeze during summer and it's not built out in the area so you don't feel particularly crammed in like other areas. I was to move back to the area Id definately look to buy in either North 'Gong (near the beach) or Thomas Street being so close to the CBD (yet quiet)
  • Quiet, so close to the CBD (walking distance, you could easily survive withut a car here) including cafes, supermarkets, Myers, David Jones and all shops in between.
  • Central within Wollongong, situated at the top of Wollongong's original 'hill' near Wollongong's first Anglican church and a minute's walk from a primary school and close to Smith's Hill High School.
  • Gets good ocean breezes due its elevation above sea level, close distance to the beach.
  • Limited street parking, although there is a council carpark close by.
