It contains a mixture of small rural properties and family homes. Located there is a NSW Rural Fire Service station and a small community hall where the Wongawilli colonial dance club meets regularly. The community has had a long history with coal mining, with the Wongawilli colliery opening in 1916 by the Hoskins Brothers, and later being taken over by BHP Billiton. Since this time the mine has expanded and has had multiple owners, and is currently owned and operated by the Indian company Gujarat NRE.
