Where We Are

Situated between Austinmer and Bulli, it is approximately a 15 minute drive north of Wollongong, and an hours drive south of Sydney. It is a small town nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the stunning Illawarra escarpment

Driving & Parking

Jose Jones Restaurant & Bar is situated in the heart of Thirroul, which is only a 15 minute drive north of Wollongong, or a 1 hour drive south of Sydney.  We have plenty of on-site parking available at the bar and restaurant, and on those rare occasions our car park is full, there is free street parking right outside.

If you need more detailed directions to find us, please do not hesitate to call us anytime.

Secure, overnight parking is available, so if you suddenly decide to indulge in that extra cocktail, you can safely leave your car with us, and pick it up in the morning.  We can organise private taxis to take you and your party home, and even to bring you back in the morning if required.
