"Easy access to all"

I have lived here for 5 years and down the road in Warrawong for 6 years both suburbs are great to me, has all the shops you need with Harvey Norman, Domayne, Joyce Mayne, Good Guys and all the bedding and furniture shops, they are redeveloping the Warrawong Plaza to have a restaurant there , 2 cinemas with Hoyts much cheaper than other places and small cheap one as well, medical services that bulk bill, dental ...the Port Kembla beach only 5min drive and to me is the best beach in Wollongong.

10-15min drive to Shellharbour and Wollongong, 25min drive to Kiama and shorter to the beautiful Minnamurra! I like the small community feel here as opposed to the hustle and bustle of Wollongong which i try to avoid unless I have to.

"a great place to buy"

Lake Heights is one of the Illawarra most beautifully places to live.

The locals are very welcoming, you will get the chance to speak to your neighbours unlike other area and borrow that cup of sugar if need be, Lake Heights is a very friendly suburb

Most properties boasts stunning views over looking Lake Illawarra with a faction of the price you would expect to pay.
