Shellharbour - Fast Facts

Shellharbour (plus Lake Illawarra and Albion Park)
Southern suburb of Wollongong which once had a distinctive charm and character
Shellharbour is a charming township on the coast, south of Wollongong. It is located 106 km south of Sydney and 25 km from Central Wollongong. Inevitably in recent times it has become a bedroom suburb as Greater Wollongong has spread south. Now it has a small shopping centre, a pub, a post office, and a few services. Most residents prefer to travel to the large shopping complexes at Wollongong, Warrawong, Warilla and to Shellharbour Square, which, confusingly, is not in Shellharbour but west at Barrack Heights, along Lake Entrance Road.
