Yowie Bay is thought to be named from an Aboriginal word meaning “place of echoes”. Mostly a residential area, Yowie Bay showcases an abundance of waterfront homes offering top quality lifestyle opportunities.
For the boating enthusiasts it has its own marina, boat ramp and jetty, as well as the Port Hacking Open Sailing Club. The Postbox Café is a very popular spot to enjoy a great cup of coffee, breakfast or lunch with water views, and the Yowie Bay Friendly Grocer is one of the best general stores in the Shire.
Yowie Bay offers an excellent range of properties to cater for most family needs. Around the peninsular you’ll find large, well-appointed homes boasting deep waterfront views. Elsewhere in the suburb you can find attractive, spacious two-storey brick homes on large blocks. Additionally, Yowie Bay still offers more modest older style cottages suitable for renovation or rebuilding and there are still a few level building blocks available here. One of Australia’s leading retirement resorts, Waterbrook, also offers a number of options for the over-55s in the Sutherland Shire.
