Situated in equal distance from the beach to the bush, Balgownie is a charming town with both country and coastal backdrops.
Nestled at the foot of the Illawarra Escarpment between Mount Pleasant and Mount Ousley, Balgownie is just six kilometres north of the Wollongong CBD. As part of the Illawarra region on Sydney’s South Coast, Balgownie and neighbouring Mount Pleasant and Mount Ousley are just a stone’s throw away from postcard-perfect beaches, dramatic mountain ranges and one of the best driving routes in Australia. With the Illawarra Escarpment to the north and Mount Keira to the south, Balgownie, Mount Pleasant and Mount Ousley are surrounded by year-round lush greenery.
Like many townships along the NSW coast, Balgownie, Mount Ousley and Mount Pleasant were at the centre of the logging, coal mining and farming industries during the 19th century. Urbanisation during the 20th century transformed these suburbs into residential hubs with easy access to everyday amenities to cater to growing families. Schools, community centres and quaint retail strips can be found in all three suburbs while nearby Wollongong provides all other major retail necessities. The Balgownie Hotel is the area’s most popular watering hole along with the Towradgi Beach & Waves Hotel in neighbouring Towradgi.
If you’re lusting after a slice of the easy life in a rural setting that’s only a few minutes away from beautiful beaches, look no further than Balgownie, Mount Pleasant and Mount Ousley.
