Here is a little history about Toongla: This heritage listed property dates back to 1873 + is located between Albion Park and Macquarie Pass National Park, sited on a grassy ridge with panoramic views over the Tullimbar Valley (named after a local tribal leader) to the Illawarra Escarpment and Lake Illawarra.
The original owners (the Scanian family) referred to their residence as “Green Mount Villa". In 1886 the family changed the homestead's name to “Toongla". This largely intact Victorian Villa is constructed of Colonial bonded brick and has a hipped iron roof with three large stuccoed chimneys. Interiors have cedar joinery, some iron ceilings and interesting fireplaces.
At the request of its owners, a Permanent Conservation Order was granted for its long term protection in 1987.
A perfect base to return to after exploring the coastal Shell Harbour region and the Southern Highlands.
The property is 15 min drive from Kiama beach.
It is the ultimate way to experience a relaxed Aussie stay.
You will be able to enjoy the entire home. Our outdoor entertaining areas will bring many good times to your family and friends. Breathe in the wonderful views and stroll our magnificent gardens. Toongla is like stepping into another magical world. The only part that is locked is the shed and that is where we store our garden equipment.
