what i love about shellharbour

Being a photographer, I love the diversity of the Shellharbour region. There's pristine beaches and the lake, to rolling hills, rainforest and, of course the escarpment - all within a 20-minute drive. Plus with the airport and soon to be marina - Shellharbour has it all!

Dee Kramer

We love living in Tullimbar Village, it has a fantastic sense of community! We enjoy spending time in the Village eating at cafes and our dog Peggy loves the beach. Peggy's Bistro emulates everything we love about Shellharbour and feel lucky to be part of the wonderful community our customers create.
