Wollongong is also known as an adventure city, with many high energy activities on offer. Our city stretches down the east coast of Australia and we also have an open and large coastal lagoon, Lake Illawarra in our city, this means that most of our population live within minutes of water. This has naturally resulted in a community that loves water sports.
Some of the water-based activities you can enjoy include swimming, surfing, SUPing, kayaking, dragon boat rowing, kite surfing, foil surfing, sailing, windsurfing and freediving. Fishing and whale and dolphin watching are other popular water-based activities on offer in Wollongong. Best of all many locals even enjoy these before or after work given their short commute!
“Our house is on the cycleway, so I get to enjoy the stunning bike ride on my way to work. I seriously think it’s the most beautiful commute in the world.”
