Life’s a beach for Corrimal residents

As the nbn™ network begins to roll out in Corrimal, we take a look at the town best known for its beautiful beaches.

Towns and cities all across Australia are beginning to connect to the nbn™ network, so we’re celebrating the historic moments, landmarks or features that put each area on the map.

Corrimal, NSW is a coastal suburb, located within the Wollongong region, that boasts beautiful beaches. Only a short drive from Wollongong’s town centre, Corrimal is a great place to relax and unwind without missing out on all of the action.

Locals are spoilt with Corrimal Beach on their very doorstep. Stretching 1.4km, the beach also includes a small lagoon – great for young kids to splash around in.

Sand dunes, grassy reserves and a caravan park surround the beach, so it should be no surprise that residents spend their days here throughout spring and summer.

Coastal bike rides can also be enjoyed throughout the suburb and on scenic tracks that take you up and down the magnificent Wollongong stretch.

A tight-knit community 

In 2007, the Corrimal Uniting Church saw a need within the community to form a group for local retired men to come together and socialise. A year later, in 2008, ‘Men’s Shed’ made its debut.

Men’s Shed is an Australian initiative designed to help retired males share their experiences and skills.

Open from Tuesday to Thursday each week, the Corrimal Men’s Shed has become a place for locals to spend time with men who share similar interests and hobbies. The great thing about this program is that it allows members to work together and learn or exchange skills. On top of personal projects, a lot of members contribute to the wider community too.

As the nbn™ network rolls out, locals can look forward to a connected Corrimal, which may help them to have great opportunities to work with other Men’s Sheds across the country and enjoy a beachy work-life balance!
