Woonona: Take a shopping trip down memory lane

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

During the 1990s I photographed quite a few business places in Woonona shopping centre. While the quality of the photographs are not the best, they will undoubtedly bring back many memories to some readers, of a time when Woonona boasted several banks, a selection of eateries and supermarkets. Sit back and enjoy the following slide show of pictures taken of almost 50 different places of businesses in Woonona during the 1990s.

  1. Thank you, Mick. How much that shopping strip has changed over the years (not, unfortunately for the better, I’m afraid). Haven’t driven through it for years, but hope things have improved. I grew up in Woonona, Campbell Street, and my Grandparents lived in Russell Street before moving to The Grove, Austinmer. My family (Edmondson) were lllawarra Meat along with the Huttons. Friends with the Davidsons (hardware), the Birds (first supermarket in Woonona) the Bartletts (Ken was our G.P.), Bob Champion. Dad was in Woonona- Bulli Rotary (one time president) and Bulli Lodge so was a cohort of most of the local businessmen. The preschool was originally a great post office.

  3. Wow –
    They are amazing. So much has changed. My mother owned cameo house hair dressers for years. Many a day spent along that road.
