For true connoisseurs of the bean, Centre Health Café is your tiny
temple, offering some of the best coffee in Shellharbour. We
serve hot food as well and a wide range is available for your taste
buds. There is a small range of excellent sweets, but the coffee is
the highlight, the lowlight, and the be all and end all – in short, the
reason for being. The baristas are self-confessed obsessive-com
pulsive perfectionists. The tension from behind the counter is
palpable, but the customers are relaxed as they settle back with a
newspaper and an espresso and soak up the jazz music and the
smell of roasting beans.

the 1999, ” BUSH TALKS ” sponsored by the Human Rights & equal Opportunities Commission , inadequate, and diminishing
health services emerged as the principal issues.
The health of populations living in rural & remote areas of Australia is worse than the health of those living in capital cities
and other metropolitan areas and mortality and illness levels increase as the distance from such centres increases.
