Property Description

FREE WIFI. Illaroo is a brand-new Hampton style home located in the historic coastal town of Catherine Hill Bay. With all the luxuries you need for a memorable beach holiday, this home is the perfect choice for families or larger groups to relax and unwind in a splice of paradise.


‘Illaroo’ is named after a ship wreck that occurred just off the coast of Catherine Hill Bay in 1903 and its name reflects the deep mining history of the small coastal town. Today, Catherine Hill Bay, with some original cottages still standing, is a popular coastal destination and it’s no wonder why with some of the most beautiful award winnings beaches on the East Coast. Illaroo adds a touch of modern luxury to this unique town.


As soon as you step inside the doors of modern home, you are welcomed by a contemporary beach feel. The Hampton style layout makes it an entertainer’s paradise, with open kitchen and living spaces, and a large veranda with ocean views to enjoy the sea breeze and watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. The luxury furnishings, small personal touches and brand-new appliances mean your stay will be both comfortable and memorable.

Walk to the historic ‘Catho Pub’ for a drink, a meal and some live music.


The popular patrolled Middle Camp beach is a short 2-minute drive or 10-minute walk away, and the more secluded Moonee Beach which is very popular with surfers is just 200m away. It is also surrounded by the Wallarah National Park and Munmorah State Conservation Park in the south, with popular hiking and trail bike riding trails.


Catherine Hill Bay is a popular surfing and coastal destination located only 90 mins from Sydney, just off the M1 freeway, and only 30 minutes to Newcastle. It is the perfect escape from the busy city life – being so close to the city but you will feel a million miles away. The old miner’s town has a vibe that no other coastal town on the East Coast can compare.
