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 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.
