Welcome to the Illawarra

Welcome to the Wollongong and surrounds area!

From the glorious vista on top of Bald Hill to the spectacular Minnamurra Rainforest in the South, the Wollongong & Illawarra region has enough to keep the whole family occupied every single day of the year. At South Coast Kids we love the dramatic contrast of the mountains and the beach, where the escarpment meets the sea, which gives the Illawarra region its truly unique natural beauty.
Whether its action packed adventure or a leisurely lazy afternoon the Illawarra has it all. Walking, cycling, surfing and swimming, sailing, hang gliding, paragliding, and abseiling, you can even sky dive right next to the beach.
With its long ocean drives, amazing ocean views, gorgeous beaches, fantastic playgrounds (both indoors and outdoors), a multitude or water sports, bike tracks, restaurants and cafes and accommodation styles the Illawarra really cater for the whole family, young and old.
Take a look through the different locations below to see just what is on offer in this beautiful region.
