Wollongong and Surrounds

Let yourself be surprised

The ‘Gong’ will do nothing if not surprise you. Framed by the Pacific to the east and a lush escarpment to the west, the region is naturally blessed – but it’s equally blessed by fabulous human-made attractions, like the biggest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere, kilometres of coastal cycling tracks, inviting eateries and bars, the spectacular Sea Cliff Bridge and sky-high adventure experiences.

Getting there

The Wollongong area is located just south of Sydney and the drive takes around 90 minutes. Take the scenic route along the Grand Pacific Drive and through the Royal National Park. You can catch the train from Sydney, which also takes around 90 minutes and stops off at most coastal towns in the region.
