Is Barrack Heights a good place to live?

As a local to the suburb for 45 years and a Real Estate Agent of 20 years, Richard Cooper of Illawarra Estate Agents has always wanted the same lifestyle he has lived and worked in his entire life, for his own family. He has sold numerous homes in Barrack Heights and throughout the entire Illawarra and he has witnessed some positive changes to the value in the area from affordable living right up to luxury homes.

Due to the number of buyers and sellers he has worked closely with not only his suburb but street, he knows what it’s REALLY like to live in Barrack Heights, to be centrally located to the new Shell Cove Marina, Shellharbour Precinct and only 15 minutes to Wollongong CBD.
