"Phillip bay is a beautiful suburb surrounded by 4 beaches, Kamay National Park, NSW Golf Course & so many great cafes"

Living in Phillip Bay is like living in a Coastal holiday area surrounded by the most divine nature and history. Sydney’s most affordable Eastern Suburbs water front living.... (but not for long) - infrastructure of light rail nearby, great bus timetable, close to city, surrounded by gorgeous beaches....Congwong is my favourite! During the week days it’s so quiet and the water is so blue.. Love walking to Little Bay for a morning coffee or to La Perouse cafes. Great fairs on there too.. the French Fair is my favourite. I also love looking around La Perouse Museum and seeing the history of the French & British explorers but most importantly, the aboriginal history of the area. I understand the museum will be done up soon and will be an amazing wedding venue too. The views from the top floor are to die for.It reminds me of Dunbar House in Watsons Bay.

Cafe society at Little Bay and la Perouse (Boat Shed is divine for a waterfront lunch or dinner). I love Site Pizza for dinner the food is amazing.
