Stella Maris Shellharbour is a Catholic parish primary school in the Catholic Education Diocese of Wollongong system of schools.

Stella Maris is situated in Shellharbour Village – located just over an hour's drive south from Sydney, New South Wales. The picturesque village is ideally positioned on the coastline; the main street heading down to the harbour lined with shops, cafes and restaurants. 

The school itself enjoys the close proximity to this beautiful area. The sandy beaches, rock platform and tranquil boat harbour provide an ideal outdoor learning environment for our students. See how close we are to the harbour with our Stella Maris flyover video!
