Wonderful Wollongong

The capital of the South Coast
Being close to Sydney many Sydneysiders do not consider Wollongong as a holiday destination.
The locals and many people from across Australia know differently and enjoy Wollongong’s beaches and attractions that shelter beneath the Illawarra Escarpment.
