Wollongong is located in the Australian state of New South Wales, around 80 kilometres south of Sydney. Fronting onto the Pacific Ocean, the city is a surfing center and has a long, sandy beach, which makes it a popular resort for locals and international visitors alike.

One of Wollongong’s great attractions is its down to earth, relaxed culture. Visitors will be welcomed warmly, and they can dine at some of Australia’s best restaurants during their stay. The region is particularly known for its steak and seafood combination dishes, but its food culture includes influences from around the world. Visitors can even take food tours of the area which visit local producers like orchards, vineyards, farmers and cookery academies.

However, the area around town is more famous for its natural beauty. Away from the coast, visitors can trace the Cockatoo Run on a specially constructed steam railway, which passes through rainforest and beautiful gorges.

Wollongong is also an ideal destination for active holidaymakers. The choice of activities is huge, from surfing to paragliding, hang gliding and sky-diving – all provided by local experts.

Sydney is also a short drive or bus journey away. Base yourself in a coastal resort and visit the Opera House, Botanical Gardens and enjoy a harbour tour before heading back to your peaceful accommodations. There is no better way to experience Australia’s largest city.

There are also some fine activities for families to enjoy. Along with the beach, Wollongong has an excellent planetarium, and has an enchanting Botanical Garden of its own, which is ideal for picnics.
