Picturesque Thirroul: 1909 Subdivision of Wrexham Estate

One of the most charming spots in beautiful Illawarra, and one which is finding ever-increasing favour, is the picturesquely-situated township of Thirroul. As a seaside resort it cannot be excelled. Consequently a good deal of interest attaches to the forthcoming auction sale of Mr. George McCauley’s Wrexham Estate on Monday, October 4 (Eight hour Day). The allotments to be offered number 38. They have ocean frontages. They have the further advantage of being situated at the foot of the celebrated Bulli Pass. The auctioneer is Mr. H. P. Cotterell. The sea beaches close handy are declared to be amongst the safest for bathers on the coast.

  1. In the 1960’s Mr and Mrs McCauley still operated a small farm on the estate. I think Mrs McCauley may have been a retired school teacher. They were friends of my parents (Ron and May Evans, Bulli). They owned a greyhound which from memory may have been called “Wrexham Lass”? They did not have a car but I had just got my licence and I used to drive them to the Dapto Showground to watch the dog race. They were lovely people and I used to enjoy driving them.
