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

Having been the head chef at Branches Restaurant for the past 25 years, I have cooked for and come to know many of the local community, and it is this community that I love most about Shellharbour. I have always said that Shellharbour is the perfect location, being able to enjoy all that the coast offers as well as the benefits of country living.I love the simplicity of being able to go fishing or see the ocean before and after work.
