The City of Wollongong

Wollongong harbour from the air

The City of Wollongong is located just 80km south of Sydney on a spectacular stretch of the southern New South Wales coast.

Wollongong's natural environment includes some of the most pristine beaches in Australia and the escarpment to the west offers a great network of walking trails and dazzling views of the coastline.

Wollongong is the 10th largest city in Australia and is well known for its tourism and steel industries. The city, however, is rapidly changing with education, research and innovation, information technology and telecommunications emerging as the industries of the future.
