"Awesome views and quiet"

Only lived here 7 years from Sydney and love it. Balgownie has a great small community with everything you need in the cute villiage of shops. Great views of the escarpment, quiet, low traffic and super friendly people. Even a family friendly pub and club.

"Peaceful Retreat"

I find Balgownie a very nice place to live, And think it is one of the safer places to live in Wollongong. Balgownie village covers all your basic needs well and the restaurants are very good.
