Wollongong Area Adventure


One of the best ways to enjoy the scenic coastline and escarpment around Wollongong is from the air. Why not try a tandem hang-glide from Bald Hill Lookout near Stanwell Park, a joy flight over the coast or freefalling at 250km/hr on a sky dive.

Hang gliding in Wollongong

Wollongong is a great adventure escape with plenty of outdoor activities and adventure tours to choose from at the region's beaches, lakes and rivers.

If you've ever thought you'd like to try hang-gliding, Bald Hill  at Stanwell Tops is one of the best spots in Australia to do it. Several experienced operators offer tandem hang-gliding for all skill levels. You'll soar above the cliffs and ocean before landing on Stanwell Park Beach. For the more adventurous, Wollongong is also home to Australia's only beach skydive including a night-skydive.

Cycling is popular around Wollongong because of the extensive network of bike tracks along the coast. You can even enjoy a cycling holiday with the whole family, taking two days to ride from Wollongong along the coast to Kiama.

Wollongong is surrounded by beautiful beaches and you can learn to surf with accredited surf schools at many of them.  If you're an experienced surfer, check out the waves at Scarborough Beach, Thommos break at Coledale and Sandon Point

For family-friendly adventure, check out Jamberoo Action Park which has high-speed waterslides, a downhill bobsled and favourite rides such as The Taipan and Surf Hill. Close by is the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk, a 1500 m-walk through beautiful warm temperate rainforest with great views out to the ocean.
