    We love it when visitors tell us how much they love our city and its people. Check out this excerpt from a recent review from Steve who recently enjoyed a Wollongong weekend escape… “Hi you lucky Wollongongites. My wife and I recently made a long weekend visit and we had such a great, warm time and we are missing Wollongong whilst we wait for Canberra Winter to finish…We had a meal at harbour restaurants and the Thursday night food markets we a great surprise to be followed by the Friday craft/ food markets which was awesome…The people of the gong are country style people in a city. There were shows on we could have gone to…All in all it was so therapeutic that we want to come back asap.”
