Wollongong is the major city of the Illawarra Region.  The cities name is an Aboriginal Word meaning “Sound of the Sea” and is located approximately 1 hours drive south of Sydney.  Originally famed for its coal mining and steal production, this region now hosts a lively university, 5 star hotels, guesthouses, galleries and beautiful beaches.
The city is nestled between the mountains of the Great Dividing Range and the Pacific Ocean giving spectacular lookouts and beautiful sea breezes.  The view coming into the Illawarra region through Bulli is breathtaking.

Wollongong has an easy-going regional lifestyle with an abundance of urban attractions and activities and offers many places to stay >from 5 star hotels, apartments, to budget motels, backpackers and tourist parks.

Much of the region is accessible by the beautiful south coast railway line from Sydney.  A trip from Sydney to Wollongong and on to Kiama a little further south is a must.  The Kiama Blow hole sends cascades of water into the air during big seas.

If you’re a visitor to Wollongong, you’ll find a wealth of things to do and see, from lazing on the 17 pristine patrolled beaches to exploring nearby rainforest or visiting human-made attractions such as the Wollongong Science Centre or the spectacular Nan Tien Temple, the biggest Buddhist temple in Australia.
