How to get to Wollongong City Council?

Getting to Your Wollongong Accommodation

Wherever your accommodation in Wollongong is located, there are a number of options for how to get there. The quickest way by car from Sydney is to take the A1 and M1 south, then onto the Princes Highway to Wollongong. Depending on traffic, this should take between 70-80min from central Sydney to Wollongong CBD. There are also hourly trains from Sydney to Wollongong on the South Coast Cityrail.

If you have a bit of time to play with, it's worth taking the scenic route down the Grand Pacific Drive. Just exit the freeway at Helensborough and follow the signposts to Wollongong. The Sea Cliff Bridge between Coalcliff and Scarborough is a highlight of this route.

If coming from Melbourne or Canberra, you can follow either the Illawarra Highway or Picton Road all the way to Wollongong. Picton Road is faster and more direct, while the Illawarra Highway is the more scenic route with plenty of panoramic viewpoints and picnic stops.

What are the best activities for families in Wollongong?

Holidays with kids in Wollongong

The Symbio Wildlife Park is among the top destinations in Wollongong, and the ideal place for a fun family outing. Watch a rare Sumatran tiger at close quarters, or feed a kangaroo and cuddle a koala for an authentic wild Aussie experience. Catch one of the daily shows to see how the animals are fed or grab the opportunity to be Keeper For A Day.

The fact that it is the only dedicated children’s museum in Australia is enough reason to visit the Early Start Discovery Space while on a family vacation. From mini supermarkets to construction sights, there are several interactive exhibits as well as a water play area.

Visit the Wollongong Botanic Gardens and let the children enjoy playtime in the beautiful outdoors. Frolic in the colourful flower gardens while you learn about the local flora. There is also a duck pond and playground, and Garden Storytime for pre-schoolers is held on Fridays.

Where are the unique attractions in Wollongong?

Explore Wollongong's Beaches and Swimming Holes

With no fewer than 17 surf beaches and several public pools, Wollongong is blessed with many beautiful sunbathing and swimming spots. All of which are easily accessible from any Wollongong holiday house.

If you're staying in the north of the city, head to popular North Beach, right in front of Stuart Park. Or go to Austinmer, a small but beautiful beach enclosed in a picturesque cove backed by plentiful cafés and restaurants. If you want a secluded spot away from the crowds, though, then wild, untamed Towradgi is your best bet.

To the south of Wollongong, pretty Port Kembla beach is one of Wollongong's best-kept secrets, and perhaps the city's most underrated beach. It has one of Wollongong's longest unbroken stretches of sand, on-site parking, and is on the coastal cycling track. Windang, at the entrance to Lake Illawarra, provides a more typical south coast beach experience.
