About Wollongong

Yulunga. Welcome to Wollongong.

Wollongong is on Dharawal Country between the Illawarra escarpment and the sea, and is one of New South Wales’ largest cities. Our unique environment includes lush rainforests, pristine beaches and a vibrant city, all just 80km south of Sydney.

Our city’s welcoming, diverse community makes Wollongong a great place to live, work and visit. Wollongong is home to a world-class university, innovative start-up scene, and offers all the benefits of city living, but with the warmth of a smaller town.

We are also proud to be Australia’s only UCI Bike City, and look forward to welcoming the world to Wollongong for the 2022 UCI Road World Championships from 18 - 25 September.
