    Hi, I used to live there so I know the place very well!

    I would avoid East Nowra or anywhere too close to it. Bomaderry has some nice streets but others not so much! There is also a smell in Bomaderry from local industry which is pretty rank at times! North Nowra or Cambewarra would be my pick, or maybe a quieter street in the older part of Nowra. West Nowra also has some nice areas. If you don't mind a bit of travel, there are plenty of coastal towns within 20-30 mins drive. Berry is 15 mins away and would be a pretty nice place to live.

    Employment can be pretty scarce down there, so it's great you have a job lined up.

    Good luck with your move

    Avoid East Nowra like the plague.

    Out of curiousity I just checked out what is available for rent in Nowra on Realestate.com and a lot of the addresses are listed as Nowra, but they are totally in East Nowra! If you are looking at properties online, you may want to have a look at the address on Google maps to make sure it isn't in East Nowra.

    The place has a shocking reputation for good reason. Avoid at all costs!

    I work in Nowra and live in Berry. Berry is great to live in, but bit pricier. North nowra isnt too bad and parts of Bomaderry. Shoalhaven Heads is about a 20min drive from Nowra and close to the beach/river and is a bit cheaper.
