When to fly
The area around Wollongong has a temperate climate, and even the winters are quite mild, making it a year-round destination making it harder to find cheap flights to Wollongong. With Sydney so close, there will always be something to do, no matter what the weather, and the city hosts a Winter Wine Festival in June as well. The festival is held at Shoalhaven Coast and there are activities on offer for everyone to enjoy from cheese and wine tasting to live entertainment and winemaker’s dinners. If you are taking a flight during this festival it is advised to book accommodation early.
But for hard-core sun lovers looking to book flights to Wollongong, the Australian summer lasts between November and February, and brings scorching temperatures.
In April Wollongong hosts their own Heritage Festival from mid-April to late May in celebration of Australian Heritage week. The festival has many events planned throughout the weeks such as exhibitions and guided tours.
Take a flight to Wollongong and see the Australian state of New South Wales, around 80 km south of Sydney. Fronting onto the Pacific Ocean, the city is a surfing centre and has a long, sandy beach, which makes it a popular resort for locals and international visitors alike.
One of Wollongong’s great attractions is its down to earth, relaxed culture. Visitors will be welcomed warmly, and they can dine at some of Australia’s best restaurants during their stay. The region is particularly known for its steak and seafood combination dishes, but its food culture includes influences from around the world. Visitors can even take food tours of the area which visit local producers like orchards, vineyards, farmers and cookery academies.
However, the area around town is more famous for its natural beauty. Away from the coast, visitors can trace the Cockatoo Run on a specially constructed steam railway, which passes through rainforest and beautiful gorges.
Wollongong is also an ideal destination for active holidaymakers. The choice of sports is huge, from surfing to paragliding, hang gliding and sky-diving – all provided by local experts.
Sydney is also a short drive or bus journey away. Base yourself in a coastal resort and visit the Opera House, Botanical Gardens and enjoy a harbour tour before heading back to your peaceful accommodation. There is no better way to experience Australia’s largest city.
There are also some fine activities for families to enjoy. Along with the beach, Wollongong has an excellent planetarium, and has an enchanting Botanical Garden of its own, which is ideal for picnics.
Getting around the centre of town is made easy by a shuttle bus service which runs between the University, the town’s station and the Central Business District, and which arrives every ten minutes. Outer suburbs can be reached by trains, and all major car hire services have a presence in town as well.
Getting to the city from the airport
Nearest airport for flights to Wollongong would be Sydney Airport (SYD), which can be reached by train directly. There are two routes but in both cases the journey will last around two hours. You can also hire a car at the airport, which may make more sense if you wish to explore the countryside and coastal highway.
