The Area: Wollongong
Famed for its beautiful beaches, vibrant surf culture and laidback atmosphere, Wollongong is one of the most popular destinations for Sydneysiders in need of a break. Climbing away from the coast and into the lush vegetation of the Illawarra Escarpment, the sound of breaking waves is replaced by birdsong and the gentle rustling of eucalypts, offering a sublimely tranquil and relaxing escape from the big smoke.
Groupies could head to Jervis Bay and take a whale or dolphin watching cruise, hike along magnificent coastal tracks, and explore beaches famed for their pure white sand; visit the traditional rural villages of scenic Kangaroo Valley; or relish the antique shops, tearooms and beautiful gardens of the Southern Highlands.
