Affectionately called 'the Gong', the seaside city of Wollongong is located along the beautiful Grand Pacific Drive south of Sydney and is perfect for a rejuvenating city break. Beaches are a major draw here, but Wollongong is home to much more than that.
Booking accommodation in Wollongong will allow you to marvel at the Sea Cliff Bridge, get close to koalas at Symbio Wildlife Park, enjoy surfing at beaches of nearby coastal villages like Thirroul and ride a bike or hike up to the Mount Keira. Skydiving above the coast is another exciting activity to try.
Wollongong is also known for its active arts scene and cultural diversity, and is home to attractions such as the Wollongong Art Gallery, and the Nan Tien Temple - the biggest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere. Staying at a beautiful holiday home in Wollongong is an excellent idea for a memorable vacation.
