Wollongong's Australia Day celebration, held around Wollongong Harbour and foreshore, is the City's biggest annual event. We're already working to bring you another great day on 26 January 2016, and will update this page with program details when they're confirmed.
In the meantime, there are a number of ways you can get involved:
