Wollongong began as a farming settlement and expanded hugely as a port city for the coal mined in the Illawarra. In the 20th century, the city expanded further when it became a major steel producer.

Wollongong is a lively, likable city with glorious natural surroundings, superb beaches and a growing reputation as a city that appreciates fine food and wine.
The city has a range of accommodation options that make this a perfect base from which to explore the Illawarra region
