Location: Haywards Bay


Haywards Bay is a part of Wollongong City Council. It is situated in the state of New South Wa;es. Haywards Bay is surrounded by 85 hectares of reserve and offers nearly 5 kilometres of waterfront to Macquarie Rivulet and Lake Illawarra. It is located fifteen minutes from the heart of Wollongong and 90 minutes from Sydney’s CBD. The surrounding suburbs of Haywards Bay are Yallah, Oak Flats, Albion Park, North Macquarie, Calderwood Valley and Marshall Mount.

The Lake Illawarra Authority (LIA) is in the early stages of planning the management of Haywards Bay foreshore. This is a result of a Deed of Agreement between Winten Property Group and the Authority that 81 hectares of foreshore land will be transferred to LIA at the conclusion of the subdivision development, or on 31 December 2010, whichever occurs first.
