Name: Penny Hartgerink (married as Penny Eastlake).
Occupation: Musician and early childhood music teacher for Big Fat Smile.
Suburb: Kiama Downs.
Hometown: Kiama Downs.
Hobbies: Singing and playing guitar, watching live music, going to the beach.
Fun fact about me: I've always wanted to be a presenter on Playschool, my favourite kids’ show.
My favourite thing about the area is: I love all the natural beauty that Kiama has to offer. We are so spoilt for choice with beautiful beaches, parks and walking tracks and nearly every where you turn has a lovely view. I also love the small town feel and how supportive the Kiama community is to its local people. It was such a wonderful place to grow up and I am so happy to be raising my son here.
What makes the area unique: Its natural beauty and its fantastic music program at Kiama High School.
