The opening of several new businesses and the renovation of others is revitalising the Wollongong- side of Thirroul, which has struggled under the pressure of parking problems since the introduction of the ‘new’ train timetable in 2015.
In fact, Thirroul’s South is blossoming!
A gorgeous new florist and gift shop has opened it’s doors alongside Ray White. Luca Luna looks and smells divine (and has the best floor of any shop around! It’s magazine-worthy!)
Over the road is the new Urge Records. Down the alley next to the video shop is this hidden treasure- filled with underground music.
Cuccina cafe is newly renovated. Now it’s big, beautiful and still boasts great coffee and the most appealing, and gorgeous looking range of salads in town!
The lunch queue has been 10 deep at Sareven Bakehouse over the holidays. The name-change from Flemmings appearing to have caused barely a ripple as the business underwent a refurb.
And it’s not over yet.
Wollongong Council has approved a deli and licensed premises for the old Ciao Bella (next to the nursery), with the application detailing a potential wine bar at the site.
Council has also approved a take away food premises at the former gym premises next to King’s Charcoal Chicken. Signs have been erected that indicate the restaurant could be the area’s first, long-awaited Japanese venue. Called Toro on one side and Sushiya on the other, fingers are crossed there will soon be a little more gastronomic diversity in the Northern Illawarra.
