North Wollongong Beach

Enjoy a day of fun with the family at this central beach with a broad sandy strip, rock pools, grassy foreshore areas and plenty of space to relax.

North Wollongong Beach is a favored local beach with a sweep of golden sands framed by rocky platforms and craggy bluffs. Spend the day lounging on the soft sands or bring your surfboard and check the swell. Overlooked by the historic Wollongong Surf Bathing and Life-Saving Club, the 0.3-mile (500-meter) beach has a safe swimming section where young children can play and wade in the waves.

Wander along the grassy foreshore and watch the waves crashing on the rocky bluffs that flank the beach. Pick a spot on the sand and spread out your towel. The beach has a dependable surf break that rolls into shore. Swim in the lifeguard-patrolled waters or wax up your surfboard and take on the breaks. There is a series of rock pools and wading areas, which are popular with younger kids. Peer into the tidal pools to see the variety of marine critters that inhabit the waters.

Admire the architecture of the surf club, which was built in 1914. Make your way to the northern end of the beach to find Stuart Park. Lined with pine trees, the waterfront park is an idyllic spot for a picnic. Choose a picnic table and grill your lunch on the barbecues while the kids explore the children’s playground. Alternatively, have a meal at one of the cafés on the street fronting the beach. Gorgeous ocean views can be seen from the cycling and walking track that extends from the foreshore. North Wollongong Beach is not a dog-friendly beach, but you can bring your furry friend to the beach on the other side of the lagoon on the northern end of the beach.

North Wollongong Beach lies 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) northeast of the city center. It is easy to reach by bus, bike and on foot. Park for free in the lot near the surf club and picnic areas. Showers and public restrooms are available at this beach. Lifeguards patrol the beach daily during the warmer months.
