Helensburgh is the northern most suburb of Wollongong, situated below the Royal National Park.

Helensburgh is a mostly residential suburb, thought to be named after the town in Scotland or after Helen Harper, daughter of the manager of Cumberland Coal Miners.

Since 1978, Helensburgh has been the home of the Sri Venkateswara Hindu Temple, a glistening white South Indian-style Hindu temple.
Set on top of a hilly area, the temple has become the focal point for Sydney's Hindu community, which holds regular festivals and celebrations here.

Take a stroll in the Wodi-Wodi Walking Track - a beautiful 6.5 kilometre bush land trail with
panoramic views and a look at Lawrence Hargrave House.

Major features of the area include Symbio Wildlife Park, Helensburgh Hall, Just Cruisin' Motor Cycle Tours, Helensburgh Golf Driving Range and Putt Putt and Ultimate Skirmish Paint Ball Centre.
