Experience the wonders of Wollongong – the city is a trick of the eye. Stroll the streets and you’ll think you’re in a cosy coastal town.

Hit the centre, however, and you’ll find plenty of action. Dine at restaurants that serve up a variety of cuisines and bars that pour local drops. Meet local artists who draw upon their spectacular surroundings for inspiration. The Illawarra mountain range peers over the coast and wild surf beaches scored with pretty rock pools. Look around – you’ll be inspired, too.
