Flanked on the east by the Pacific Ocean, nestled around a calm harbour and surrounded by mountainous forest to the west, Wollongong offers a brilliant backdrop for a holiday. Located less than two hours south of Sydney our Wollongong accommodation is a great place to escape to for the weekend, spend the school holidays or explore for a week or two. North Wollongong features a number of beautiful beaches, with accompanying North Wollongong accommodation, you can spend your holiday time at any number of hotels or motels right on the beach.
The Wollongong coastline features 17 spectacular beaches, all of which are patrolled from September to April. The clear blue waters of the Pacific made the beaches ideal for swimming and surfing, but also attract many species of marine life that you can see in the rock pools can be found closer to the shore. One of our Wollongong hotels is a great base when enjoying the sunshine and sand of the Wollongong coast.
If land based activities are more up your alley, take in some of the sixty kilometres of bike paths and walkways meander along the coast, during your stay in a Wollongong hotel. The tracks are perfect for a relaxing stroll, and offer magnificent views of the ocean. If you are feeling really active you can take in the views from Mt Keira Summit Park, which can be reached by a number of walking tracks which lead off the 5.5km Mt Keira Ring Track.
Wollongong is also home to the largest Buddhist temple in the Southern hemisphere, the Nan Tien Temple. Nan Tien is Chinese for Southern Paradise, which you will find is quite fitting after a stay in our Wollongong accommodation. The temple is open to visitors and combines many styles of Buddhist architecture, from the angular and distinctly Chinese seven storey Pagoda, to the brightly coloured South-East Asian sculptures in the surrounding grounds and the Japanese style gardens of the courtyards.
