Batemans Bay

Batemans Bay, like the whole the South Coast of NSW, is enjoying positive population growth, and generous government investment. However, ageing housing stock, and a meaningful desire to protect the Coast’s spectacular natural environment from suburban sprawl means that greater densification in already developed areas will be a key strategy to creating a better South Coast for all. Our latest small townhouse project is symptomatic of the changes that are coming in Batemans Bay.
