Where the mountains meet the sea.

Once known for its steelworks industry, port activity and relatively young university, over the past decade, Wollongong has become recognised for its small-city coastal feel and thriving culinary scene.

What many love most about “The Gong” is how the mountains meet the sea. The city’s long stretch of coastline has Mount Keira, Brokers Nose, Mount Kembla and Mount Ousley as its backdrop. It’s all a 10-minute drive from the beach.
