Meet, The Illawarra Florist

We specialise in personalised and professional customer service, reliability and stunning arrangements that offer value for money.


Introducing, Liat Drakos

Liat Drakos was born to be a florist. Her family’s garden was a fertile learning ground for a budding young green thumb. Whether it was planting veggies with her mum and dad, or potting blooms for next season with her nanna and aunt, garden and family was always Liat’s happy place. 

After a number of years doing the daily grind, Liat had business ambitions and felt the call to serve her community. She decided to turn her love of flowers into a profession, by studying floristry at TAFE NSW Yallah.

Shortly after graduating, Liat opened a florist and gift shop in Warrawong, prizing a personal, yet professional customer service, reliability and stunning arrangements for gift-givers and receivers alike. Liat’s quality service and wares, plus going above and beyond for her customers, quickly earned her a loyal customer-base with locals and major Illawarra businesses.

10 years later, Liat has become one of the most sort-after names in floristry in Kiama and Illawarra. She operates from her home workshop -and garden- in Kiama, servicing her local community, and selected neighbouring regions in Shoalhaven and Illawarra. 

Going above and beyond for customers in our community

Whether it is ordering online or over the phone, the Illawarra Florist prides itself on a personal, yet professional customer service, reliability and stunning arrangements that offer value for money. Our customers have been trusting us to do this for almost a decade!


Best florist in Kiama and Illawarra. The Illawarra Florist's service is exceptional, and the arrangements are some of the best I've seen (and smelt...)

Really happy with the delivery! Flowers are amazing, and even though they didnt have all the flowers that I ordered available, they swapped them with even nicer ones (after consulting with me first). Will certainly use again. Great stuff, keep up the good work!

What wonderful personal service. I accidentally filled in the incorrect address of a delivery and I called the owner and she was more than happy to change the address even after almost delivering it. The service was impeccable and even sms'ed me when it was done. Brilliant and perfect product.

Absolutely excellent service and pricing! I made an order for a rose in a box to be delivered to Addison's Restaurant

Liat goes above and beyond every single time. She is someone you can trust with a gift for someone really special.

My friend was absolutely thrilled with the flowers, which definitely helped to cope with the death of her husband.

My mum really loved the flowers that I ordered for her. My sisters said they have never seen more beautiful arrangements like them before.

Thank you Liat for making up such a lovely colourful arrangement for me today. You really do have a knack with colours :) The delighted smile on my friend's face made it worthwhile

Thankyou I received a pic and I am very happy I will be using you from now on...

The flowers were exactly what I wanted and paid for.. fresh, beautiful and vibrant. Will Definitely use this service again and recommend it to my friends..

They were received with a smile – thanks so much for your customer service.
