Welcome to Wombarra,
Wombarra is an Aboriginal word meaning black duck. It is a very significant area to aboriginal people, particularly women.
Wombarra is a beautiful coastal village, just minutes from the well known Sea Cliff Bridge
Look out onto the dramatic escarpment which falls into the ocean
The property backs onto a pocket of semi rainforest and faces north east with the ocean to the east and escarpment to the west. It is truly a unique and peaceful location.
The apartment is generous in size with high ceilings and huge windows facing north east for abundant light and sun in winter.
The bedrooms are spacious with generous storage space.
The kitchen has both a gas cook top and electric oven, perfect for cooking that special meal to enjoy on the balcony overlooking the treetops to the sea.
There are two bathrooms.. the main featuring a bath and a view to the forest.

Our thoughts on what makes a great experience
We will provide you with the space to just enjoy the peace of the landscape and perhaps read a great book on the verandah overlooking the treetops to the ocean.
You can play cards with the family, cook a fabulous feast, explore the many shopping delights of the area. Hike the trails of the Royal National Park along the cliff tops.
Observe the flight of man and their gliders at Stanwell tops, perhaps dare to go two up with one of the training schools. Fall out of a plane at Wollongong
Catch a $10 movie at the Gala or venture to the Outdoor Summer Cinema near the Wollongong University.
Catch a train up the coast just the enjoy the majestic views as the train winds its way along the cliffs and through the tunnels. Observe some of the remains of a region once rich in mining. If you are lucky, you may be visiting when the steam train travels from Bowral down to the Illawarra coast.
Spend time with loved ones playing games, singing, dancing making up plays
you can just enjoy the true luxury of nothing
nothing but contemplation and gratitude for a beautiful experience with those you love.
