This South Coast town has a vibe you will fall in love with. North of Wollongong – with the majestic Grand Pacific Drive as your escape from Sydney – Austinmer NSW is a gorgeous village between Stanwell Park and Thirroul. The beach is small with two rock pools and an array of shops just across the road. When you go back a few streets, you come across a small community of shops, cafes and restaurants that transport you to a street in Sydney's Glebe! Funky with great coffee and food, Austinmer is a real South Coast secret.
