Close to Sydney – easy to travel and visit clients

Wollongong is only an hour south from Australia’s largest city, Sydney. Yet we live and work without the congestion and stress of a major city. This is a big plus for many of the entrepreneurs, business owners and companies who chose to base their business here. Yet, that isn’t the only advantage.

We are also only an hour away from Australia’s most connected airport, the Sydney Airport which has a domestic and international terminal. The reality is that it will often take those who live and work in Wollongong the same amount of time or even less to travel to the airport than many of those who live in Sydney.

Wollongong is also only one hour away from the new Western Sydney Airport Sydney’s second airport that is currently under construction. If you base your business in Wollongong – you will be spoilt for choice as to which airport you choose to take a well-deserved holiday or head off on a business trip.

Visiting clients in Sydney is also easy given Wollongong is connected to the CBD and other key business centres across Sydney such as Parramatta, Macquarie Park, Liverpool and North Sydney through the M1 Princess Motorway and other major highways.

One hour from Australia’s cultural capital

Known as Australia’s cultural capital, Sydney boasts many iconic landmarks like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and the National Maritime Museum.

On the weekends you can easily head to Sydney and attend events like the spectacular Vivid Light Festival or explore Sydney’s many museums such as the Australian Museum or the Museum of Sydney.

Or perhaps you want to see what collections the Art Gallery of NSW is currently displaying or watch your favourite team play at Allianz Stadium. All these options are within your reach when you live in Wollongong.

Close to Australia’s capital city, Canberra

Australia’s capital city, Canberra, is only a 2.5 hour drive away from Wollongong. And access to other major cities, such as Melbourne, comes from the nearby Hume Highway.

Businesses such as those in professional services or the tech industry can easily meet clients, send their staff to conference or attend business networking events given Wollongong’s proximity to these major cities.

We have a major port terminal

Port Kembla is the home of Wollongong’s very own port terminal. It provides businesses based in Wollongong with access to worldwide markets and is situated just 5km south of the Wollongong
CBD.

Our port is NSW’s largest motor vehicle port and grain export hub. It operates across two precincts, the inner harbour and the outer harbour. It has:

  • 6 major independently operated terminals
  • 18 import/export berths
  • 2 bulk liquid berths
  • 3,410 metres of quay line
  • 186ha of land
  • 3.5 kms of road network
  • 29 kms of rail network.

The Port will soon be home to NSW’s first liquified natural gas (LNG) import terminal being developed by AIE. This terminal will provide a more reliable gas supply to households and businesses, supplying up to 7o% of NSW’s gas needs and helping drive down prices for consumers state-wide. Access to this reliable energy resource has been welcomed by the many Advanced Manufacturing businesses that call Wollongong and NSW home.
