Wollongong lies just one hour south of Sydney. The name Wollongong means between the mountains and the sea, and that is precisely where it lies, on a long narrow strip. Wollongong is bounded by beaches on one side and the escarpment on the other. This is a truly beautiful place. The entire city is highly multicultural adding to its charm and relaxed approach to life. Renowned for its university and the Innovation Campus, Wollongong attracts people from all over the world.
