Lockdown Restrictions in Wollongong

From Saturday 26 June, until further notice, Greater Sydney including Wollongong are under stay-at-home orders as directed by the NSW Government. That means if you live outside Wollongong, you won’t be able to visit us for the time being, but we look forward to seeing you when travel can resume. For more information on restrictions and the latest COVID-19 information, please click the link below.

Unsure how to understand the recent support package announcements for individuals and businesses from the NSW Government? Our friends at KMPG have pulled together a summary of support packages at the link below.

Instagram post 17911575979964065 Hello from #Wollongong! 😍

We’re throwing it back with this stunning shot over #BellambiPool, captured by @ausmashmash. 

With the weather warming up, now is the perfect time to enjoy our coastal rockpools and beaches (which also make for the perfect picnic spots! 😉). See #linkinbio for a full list.

And when it’s this good, you can’t help but countdown the days until we’re able to explore our own backyard and welcome visitors back to our beautiful city. 

Until then, visit #linkinbio to see who is currently open and which businesses you’ll plan to visit when it is safe to do so!

A few laps in one of Wollongong's coastal rockpools is the perfect start to the morning. With nine located along our coastline, tell us which one is your favourite and why?

Instagram post 17970437707413943 Did you know that Wollongong's very own @darkesglenbernieorchard has some of the world's very best cider? 

Recently winning awards at the prestigious World Cider Awards in London. Taking home two gold, one silver and winning 'World's Best Sparkling Perry' for their 'Perry' pear cider 🙌 

Connect with nature at DARKES. Buy the best fresh fruit from the Appleshack or one of their award winning ciders. When restrictions ease, why not book a farm tour experience & pick your own from their fruit trees-when in season 🍎🍏

We would like to acknowledge Aboriginal people and their cultural and spiritual connection to this land. Their stories are written in the land and hold great significance to Aboriginal people from the mountains to the sea. As you travel through the Illawarra immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Dharawal Country.
