26 Best Wollongong Attractions Every Tourist Must See

On the New South Wales coast, just over an hour south of Sydney, Wollongong is a great place to take a break from the bustle and rush of The Harbour City. To get there from Sydney, take a coastal drive known as the Grand Pacific Drive taking in scenic vistas and dramatic views. The highlight of the entire drive will be a feature called the Sea Cliff Bridge, one of the most photogenic places in Australia.

Fun days for kids can be found at Jamberoo Action Park, an exhilarating theme park with a host of scary and exciting rides. For educational stuff, try the Science Centre Planetarium, or for younger children, the Early Start Discovery Space Centre.
