Why Wayne Bland chose Austinmer
It is located 100 metres from Austinmer's patrolled surfing beach and ocean pools, and handy to cafes, newsagent, Headlands Hotel, coastal cycleway and Sublime Point hike. There is also an ocean boat ramp in Austinmer.

Absolutely loved this place. No matter where you are in the apartment or what time of day it is you can hear the waves crashing on the shore a few scant metres across the road. The apartment is more like a small house in terms of space and comfort and the hosts could not do enough for you. The thoughtful touches like yummy biscuits and teas in the kitchen, plentiful toys and books for the children and loads of extra towels and linen made it all a Dream.
Could not recommend this place more highly, couldn’t think of a single negative. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful spot. Lovely accommodation.
All great. Hope to come back in the near future. Jennie

Austinmer is a coastal village about an hour south of Sydney and 20 minutes north of Wollongong. It is easily accessible by road or rail. Award-winning Austinmer Beach is a level 100m walk from the property. As well as the beach and surf, there are two large ocean pools for all ages to enjoy.
There are many cafes/restaurants in Austinmer and nearby Thirroul and Coledale, all within walking distance. Headlands Hotel is an outstanding venue for a meal or drink. Austinmer backs onto a tree-covered escarpment that can be climbed via the Sublime Point walking track. At the top you will be rewarded with magnificent views and you can enjoy a meal or coffee there from Wednesday to Sunday.
The coastal cycleway from Austinmer to Wollongong must be one of the most spectacular cycleways anywhere, with ample opportunities for swimming or coffee along the way. Coastal walks and drives will also impress and don't forget the Sea Cliff Bridge, about a 10 minute drive north.
If shopping is your thing, then browsing the interesting shops of neighbouring Thirroul is a must, or venture 20 minutes to Wollongong for the big shops. Check Anita's Theatre in Thirroul for shows or WIN Entertainment Centre, WIN Stadium, IPAC and Town Cinemas in Wollongong.
