Flagstaff Hill - Wollongong

On the southern outskirts of Sydney, with 30 kilometres of fantastic coastline, is the city of Wollongong, known as the regional capital of the Illawarra.

To the north of Wollongong is the Royal National Park, offering pristine heath, rainforest and coastal habitats to explore, then follow the spectacular coast road, as it cuts into the cliff face, passing over sites where coal mines once burrowed into the mountain.

Other attractions travelling down include Helensburgh, Bald Hill and Lawrence Hargrave Memorial (Stanwell Park), Sublime Point (Austinmer), Scarborough Hotel (Scarborough), and Rhododendron Gardens (Mt Pleasant).

If you're looking for accommodation, local businesses, vintage clothing, a new or used car, caravan, surfboard or something else, the Gumtree local Wollongong community page lists the most recent classified ads from Wollongong and it's surrounding areas.
