Albion Park

From steam trains to heritage aircraft, scenic flights, mountain bike trails, rainforest walks and a picturesque golf course, Albion Park offers many wonderful and exciting things to do and see. You’ll be amazed by the daring aerobatics at the spectacular Wings Over Illawarra air show every May.

Only a short drive west of the Shellharbour region’s beautiful beaches, Albion Park is home to fascinating train and aviation museums. You can ride steam, diesel and miniature trains at the Illawarra Light Railway Museum and visit the Historic Aircraft Restoration Society Aviation Museum.

Illawarra Light Railway Museum - Albion Park

The HARS collection of military and commercial aircraft at the Illawarra Regional Airport is extraordinary. You’ll see the Qantas 747-400 that made history with a nonstop London-Sydney flight, a Lockheed Super Constellation and a Catalina flying boat, to name just a few of the aircraft.

There are tours and special Tarmac Days at the aviation museum, and the Wings Over Illawarra is held in early May. The airport is a short walk from Albion Park Rail train station. Throughout the year you can enjoy scenic joy flights over the majestic NSW South Coast with various operators, including:

Scenic views of a stream passing through Macquarie Pass National Park

More attractions are a short drive away. Calderwood Valley Golf Course is an 18-hole public course next to the magnificent Illawarra Escarpment. Mountain bike riders of all skill levels will be thrilled with Greenvalleys Mountain Bike Park, near the escarpment drive up the winding Macquarie Pass.

In the Macquarie Pass National Park is the enchanting Cascades walk, a 2km return waterfall trail. You might be lucky and spot lyrebirds in the rainforest and platypus in the babbling creek. Hikers will also enjoy the challenging Clover Hill trail, a 6km return walk to the Rainbow Falls and open fields.

You’ll find a number of places to stay in and around Albion Park, which is about 90 minutes’ drive from Sydney and only 10 minutes from the giant waterslides in the Jamberoo Action Park. Half an hour away from Albion Park is Australia’s highest zip-line at the Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures.
