A shortage of stock may have helped that price rise; however, that has likely been alleviated somewhat since the completion of a number of projects in the centre of town.

While Gerringong may be considered just a coastal getaway by many, the township of around 4,000 people has plenty to offer.

Gerringong train station links the town to regional centres such as Wollongong and Nowra, while nearly $1bn has been spent in recent years on upgrading the Princes Highway.

Other popular tourist towns such as Kiama and Berry are also a short drive away.Close
