Things to See and Do in Wollongong

The coastline around Wollongong consists of many beautiful beaches characterised by their gold coloured sand. There are also several beaches with ocean pools where many locals and tourists swim all year round. There is bushwalking on nearby Mount Keira and Mount Kembla and a popular ‘climb’ is to the top of Sublime Point where you get an amazing view of the whole Wollongong region.

East of the city lies a rocky headland called Flagstaff Point. The northern side of the point was excavated by convict labour to form Belmore Basin and later extended to create Wollongong Harbour. This area is the site of a historic colonial fort, several restored cannons and two lighthouses, an unusual sight for the east coast of Australia.

One of the most photographed places in the area is Sea Cliff Bridge which was built in 2005 for both vehicle and pedestrian traffic.  Thousands of people come to see it each year and it has appeared in numerous TV commercials and films.
